  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. If you do decide to go ultimate add 2 gigs of ram.
  4. ultimate is kinda pointless, get home premium at most.
  5. It does sound cool!!!!!!!!
  6. it does!!!!!!!!!!!111111eleven.

    whats the difference between home premium and ultimate?

  8. Language packs and bitlocker and can recognize more than 16 gigs of ram.......
  9. Stick with premium unless you can use the other features.
  10. will i actually get better performance with premium?
  11. No it will perform the same , but don't pay for features you don't need.
  12. 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.

    You can download this and run it to make sure,but the specs say yes.
  14. 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.
