Hi Everyone
Not sure what to believe here, the compatibilty list published on this forum shows a conflict compared to the win 7 upgrade advisor for my graphics card.

From the forum link- type in 'ATI Radeon x1650' series,- and you will see it is not compatible.


From the win 7 upgrade advisor that i ran on my PC:-

There are some issues you should take a look at before installing Windows 7.
System Requirements
Upgrade Backup system first You'll need to perform a custom installation of Windows 7 and then reinstall your programs. Make sure to back up your files before you begin. Go online to get important information about installing Windows 7.

RAM 2.00 GB Your system memory meets the 1 GB minimum requirement.
