I'm looking into installing Windows 7, however, I do have one question:
Will it run smoothly on my system?
First off, here are my specs, (fresh off Dell's Documentation and dxdiag):
- Dell Dimension 3000
- Intel(R) Pentium 4 Processor (2.8 GHz)
- Intel(R) 865 GV Motherboard
- Intel(R) 82865G Graphics (Extreme)
- DirectX 3D V9 (tested, passed)
- 1.25GB DDR (1GB DDR PC3200 400MHz) (256MB DDR 2700 333MHz)
- SoundMax AC97 Sound Blaster (Audio)
I've ran the Upgrade Advisor and I passed except they say my Graphics Card "isnt supported". I have
looked online and actually around this forum, and people are saying that my graphics card, does, in fact, work after Windows Update, and others say it does not. I do
want Aero to work, so thats one of my questions; does my Graphics Card work?
My second question; Will my system run reasonably smooth?
I'm looking for multi-tabbed web browsing, iTunes in the background, etc; your average home user.
Thanks, I hope I get some decent responses. I would like people who are actually running Windows 7 (who isn't on this forum), and perhaps someone who's running it in a setup like mine. I'm no begginer. I do know a lot about computers, so feel free to to use advanced terminology, etc.
