Would Windows 7 have a chance at running on this PC?

Take a look at the system specs in my profile. Can you tell me if (with a few upgrades, like RAM and HDD) this system could run Windows 7?

Much appreciated,
-BrandonSH.

P.S. First post!

Hi and welcome to seven forums

Yes. with ram and HD it will run but not with the aero effects. For a bit more on a video card it would. we have ppl running on less. One user is running on a P-II

Hi Brandon, welcome to the SevenForums.

You should read this thread. IMO opinion it won't be easy. Insufficient RAM, out of the date GPU, HD capacity.

I would not even try, but maybe I am too skeptical. Good luck.

I think you'll need 512 mb of ram to install and your current HD will pretty much be full when your done. But Windows7 really surprised me when I installed on my old AMD Athlon 2000+ with 1 GB of ram. Ran better than XP. Here is a thread on some pretty minimal machines: Windows 7 on OLD computers

Like I say, a few cheap upgrades and I should have a Seven capable (only just)
I'm quite happy to get some RAM and a Hard Drive if it means I can run Seven! ...

Oh, and by the way, I also have a TP-LINK internal wireless adapter. Would that be compatible?

Not knowing the precise model of your T-link, it's hard to say. Here's T-link's driver page, check your model and see if they have drivers for you.

I haven't a clue what model it is, and device manager won't tell me.

All I know is that it's a PCI card and it makes a tiny little arial stick out of my PC.

Go here: SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala and download SIW. It should give you more details than you can ever use about your system.
