Best Windows 7 Edition for my PC

Hi,

I got a used IBM pc from my uncle as a gift. It has a pentium 4 2.80Ghz processor and 1.50Gb of RAM. And for the OS it has Windows 7 Enterprise. But I kind of find it low in performance. What is the best edition I can install in this PC? Please suggest..

Thanks

You state that it's an IBM in the post and your system specs has it as a Dell. Which is it? Visit the following site and follow the instructions;

You can try 7 Home Premium, but honestly, you should just put XP Pro on it. You will get the best performance out of it with that CPU and that amount of ram. Your FSB is only 533 MHz.

I have a Dell 4550 with these exact specs with 2 Gigs of ram and a QuadroFX 1150 card, it is not worth wasting your time or money putting Windows 7 on it.

According to this, you can max it out to 4 Gigs. If you do that and get a good video card for it then you could install W7 HP 32 Bit.

Does it have a slot for a video card ? And what type ? Probably a low profile pci or agp. Can`t tell from this info.

It does not matter which edition of Windows 7 you install on it. They are all the same and the same level of performance. The only difference is additional features, features that have no impact on performance.

Firstly - why wud anyone get a P4 in this time when its already obsolete. - just asking. Yes best advice like addram said put XP on it and maybe upgrade ur ram to maximum cpacity. Check how much ram ur motherboard supports and make sure u get the proper ram for it- dont think it can take the new DDR3 onwards for it.
