Nvidea Geforce 7300 256Mb OK for Vista?

  Daibus 12:03 21 May 06

Thinking of buying a new laptop which has the Nvidea Geforce 7300 256 Mb graphics card installed.

Will this card be able to handle the premium version of Windows Vista (Aero I believe it`s called) and also is the AMD Turion 64 MT32 processor considered to be as good (or better) as the Intel Duo or Solo?

Many thanks.

A 'Vista Capable' PC will require at least an 800MHz processor, 512MB of system memory, a DirectX 9 capable graphics card, a 40GB hard drive with at least 15GB of free space, a DVD drive, and audio and internet capabilities.
The only extra requirements for a 'Vista Premium Ready' PC are a 1GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor, 1GB of Ram and a graphics card with 128MB of onboard memory capable of supporting Windows Aero2.
An Aero2 compatible card is a DirectX 9-class graphics processor that supports WDDM, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, 32 bits per pixel, and 64MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor less than 1,310,720 pixels.
128MB of graphics memory will be required to support a single monitor at resolutions from 1,310,720 to 2,304,000 pixels, or 256MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor at resolutions higher than 2,304,000 pixels.
