  1. Hi guys, I am on a low budget and have spec'd up this pc, does any one know if it will run vista aero/glass effects

    spec

    Foxconn P4M800P7MB-RS2H
    1gb ddr2 533mhz
    intel pentium D 2.66
    160gb
    dvd rw

    I managed tog get it to run ok with this simialr spec, only difference was I used an asrock mobo with the intel gma onboard graphics.

    basically will the Foxconn P4M800 chipset run it

    here is the link to the site with info on the chipset, it doesnt mention nothing about vista, but i jsut hope anyone out there would know if its spec would run it lol.

    thanks for your time and help, and feedback would be greatly appreciated

    Sorry, but I'm not sure if those graphics are good enough (I have nearly the same graphics, and they aren't astounding). You could try it, but I'm not sure it would work. Something like a GeForce 7300 would probably work though, and that's a cheap card.

    Regards :)
