By | January 17th, 2009

Microsoft however promises for moderate system requirements.

A PC which is able to run Windows Vista, is fully compatible with Windows 7. So, if you’re running Windows Vista, don’t worry about upgrading hardware. Your current hardware must be fully compatible with Windows 7, Microsoft says so.

Here are the Minimum System Requirements of Windows 7.

1 GHz x86 or x64 Processor

1 GB System RAM

128 MB DirectX 9 (preferably DirectX 10) Compatible Graphics Card

40GB Hard Disk Drive

However, these are the minimum system requirements, and you need to have a better PC to take full advantage of the new Windows 7.
