Windows Vista Hardware Requirements

Microsoft has published the requirements for Windows Vista OS.

Take these requirements into consideration before you buy a new PC or while perfroming a system upgrade!

A PC with minimum requirements cannot support the "AERO" interface, which forms all the glassy and eye catchy part of VISTA.

A PC with recommended requirements alone can run VISTA in its full glory.

Minimum Requirements (Vista-Capable PCs):
--800 MHz Intel-compatible processor
--512MB of RAM
--DirectX 9.0-Capable Graphics Processor
--20GB HD

--1GB RAM

(64MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor less than 1,310,720 pixels [no more than 1440x900]; 128MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor at resolutions from 1,310,720 to 2,304,000 pixels [no more than 1920x1200]; 256MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor at resolutions higher than 2,304,000 pixels [more than 1920x1200]).
