Will the 256MB 7200GS run vista fine with 2gb ram? thanks Edit: I forgot that does it have dvi output? Perhaps the Nvidia 8400gs might be better?

Aero requires DirectX 9, at least 128MB memory, and a WDDM driver. I've run Aero using my onboard X1250 video and 128MB shared memory with no problems. vochtige April 24, 2008 5:48:49 PM windie said:Just building a system for a friend, just movies and office work, no gaming.
