  1. Hello Confusedracoon;

    You can run the Win7 Upgrade Advisor and it will tel you if your hardware is ready to go.

    Or you can check the Windows 7 Compatibility Center website where you can check software and hardware items.

  2. I think everything you have should be compatible, but go by WR2's suggestion and run the Upgrade Advisor.
