Minimum Requirements to Run Windows Vista

If you are one of those who are Planning to Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista than this Post is going to be of use to you. Windows Vista the latest Operating system launched by Microsoft indeed requires a Powerful Processor and lots of Additional memory to run your PC smoothly.

Minimum Requirements to Run Windows Vista:

Microsoft recommends a PC with a minimum processing speed of 800MHz and a Memory(RAM) of 512 MB along with DirectX 9 Video Card. We all know that the minimum requirements are not the best option of any OS. So the Recommended Requirements for a Windows Vista Installation would be in Compliance with Windows Vista Premium Ready Edition where your PC would require a Processing Speed of 1 GHz.

Your Processor could be 32 Bit of 64 Bit and at least have 1GB of memory(RAM) along with a (Windows Display Driver Model )WDDM Driver and a Graphical Processing Unit(GPU) with 256MB of Dedicated Memory.

You would also need a Pixel Shader 2.0 with 32 bits per pixel, 60GB Hard Disk Space and 20GB of free Hard disk Space along with a working DVD-ROM drive with audio and video ouput and an Active Internet Connection.

All this Requirements can also be found on the Windows Vista Website and users would probably need to have other components if they want features like TV tuning capabilities etc..
