    My current pc is as follow...

    AMD Athlon XP 2600 + 2.13 GHz
    512mb of RAM
    Nvidia GeForce 6200 (AGP 4x) with 256mb of video memory

    I know I haven't got the best computer out there.....but I am planning on upgrading my sytem soon with more RAM....I will be adding up to 2.00GB of RAM:cool:
    So once I'm done upgrading my PC should look like this :

    AMD Athlon XP 2600 + 2.13 GHz
    2.00GB of RAM
    Nvidia GeForce 6200 (AGP 4x) with 256mb of video memory

    Also my current hard drive is a 110GB I will be adding a second one soon.....


    Please tell me your thoughts and at the moment I can run Vista well except without AERO.....I thought I would of been able to run Vista AERO, considering my graphic card, but as it stands at the moment, I cannot run AERO.....

    Also with my new upgrades added to my PC, will I be able to run most of today's intense PC games ?

    Thanks for your opinions

    Best Regards

    Hmm you shouldn't have much of a problem. Latest games are getting more and more graphically intense. I know for a fact that Aero will run under a 6600 GT AGP card. Hard drive space isn't a big deal but the RAM will definately help you. How is your experience so far?

    I just bought a brand new system right before the upgrade/rebate program was announced so I'm in Windows XP right now, though I have tested Vista RC1 and other builds.

    I am considering trying Vista on this machine:

    2-Intel Core Duo 2, 2394MHz
    2GB DDRAM
    500MB HD (2x 250GB RAID-0 array)
    Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2 (1GB Dual Core GPU) PCI-E


    My old system ran Vista and had:

    Intel Pentium 4 3.06ghz
    1GB RAM
    128MB GeForce 6600 GT AGP
    160GB HD

    Vista also ran on my laptop (without Aero functioning):

    Intel Centrino Mobile M
    2GB RAM
    Intel Integrated Graphics Accelerator
    80GB HD


    I may wait until the final release of Vista to try it on my new machine. I have access to virtualization software and I might use this simply to test it out in Windows XP
