Will Win 7 Ultimate run on this platform? YES.

However, you will gain little (if anything). You would be better sticking with XP until you can upgrade the entire system.

Hi,

It will work ok but would be better off with more memory.

In that case I would stick with xp untill I change the whole computer

ultimate is kinda pointless, get home premium at most.

Stick with premium unless you can use the other features.

No it will perform the same , but don't pay for features you don't need.

Yes, these specifications are enough, unless you work on programs like video editing software or think of big games. I had less than this and upgraded to win 7. go ahead and forget win xp.

It is just about meeting the minimal specs to run Win 7 Ultimate (premium is the better choice for the OP), it is also about the quality of the experience. Adding the extra memory as suggested earlier will certainly help. But there really is no compelling reason to jump from XP to 7 when it comes right down to it.

The money would be better spent elsewhere to begin upgrading the system in question.

Just something to think about.
