    Hi,

    I have some questions about Win7.

    What is the minimum RAM needed for Win7.

    Also what should be the CPU speed for it?

    Thanks

    You need at least 512 MB of RAM to install Windows 7, however from my personal experience I would never recommend having less than 2 GB for optimal performance. I have 4 GB on my system, and I'm a power user. I typically find my usage around 40-60%. a 1 GHZ processor is required, I'd recommend at least a 1.8 GHZ dual core or better.
