Oh. In that case if you'd like to stick with the classic look, then that takes the entire load of graphic-intensive-prettiness of the cpu's hands. It should run just as smoothly as XP is for you. ^__^'

thats good to hear i mean 512mb graphics memory should be sufficient enough to handle aero due to microsoft stating that its 128mb for the aero glass theme.

LiquidSnak is probably trying to see if your motherboard will hold any more RAM. With stock PCs, the motherboard will be specific to the model.

What number is it, and I can look up the service manual? Dell doesn't have motherboard specifications handy.

Edit - yes, I'm looking to see what type and how much RAM your motherboard supports

already checked mine can hold 2gb ram maximum so i basically just need another 512mb to complete the 2gb allowance . i might get windows 7 that supports aero but not the main ones like home premium or w.e it is.

Do you know what type of RAM, and how many slots you have?

DDR and four ram slots so i would probably take the one of the 512's away and replace with a 1gb stick or something.

If your board supports 2 GB with four slots, it only supports 512 in each slot.

Do you know the maximum frequency, and whether you need buffered or unbuffered RAM?

best i could find out is:

Memory capacities:

128-MB, 256-MB, 512-MB, or 1-GB non-ECC

my parents netbook handles 7 starter as i said and there's is intel atom.
