Windows 7: win 7/ geforce 7600 GT comaptability?

win 7/ geforce 7600 GT comaptability?

I have an issue with my pc wasn't exactly sure where to post but here it goes.
my cpu jumps to 100% when I do normal actions like refreshing a page starting windows media player etc, and when running a bit more visually based programs this gets pretty annoying.
Since my pc meets the requirements for win 7 32 bit (2GB RAM DDR2,processor: dual core 2ghz), I suspected my graphic card currently I'm using Nvidia Geforce 7600 GT.
I just wanted to find out if graph card is good enough before I start posting in general help.
Thanks in advance

That card is plenty good enough to run Windows 7 and Aero. I'm typing on my work tower at this exact moment that was running a 7600 GT with Windows 7 Pro x64 for almost a year now.

Yea will be fine. I ran a 7600GS on Vista without a problem, and it's in the spare PC now running 7 without a problem.

How is your memory usage when these issues are ocurring? You can determine this by opening Task Manager - Press Control + Alt + Del and click "Start Task Manager" it will tell you your current Physical Memory Usage. If it's higher than 75%, I would recommend using the MSCONFIG utility to disable uneeded startup items.

In order to do this, go to Start > Type in "MSCONFIG" and press enter. Once MSCONFIG is open, go to the "Startup" tab and uncheck all uneeded Startups (Anything that isn't a driver or a Microsoft application*) then press Apply and Ok. You will be prompted to restart, after you do this try your normal activity again and see if you notice any improvements.


*If you don't know what something is, Google it and ensure it's safe to uncheck. Basically all MSCONFIG does is stops those applications from starting with your system and sitting idle in the background hogging resources. It does not affect the actual usage of the program.
