Can anyone tell me if this hardware is good enough to run Vista Home Premium. CPU: Celeron D 2.8ghz RAM: 2GB DDR333 HDD: 80GB ATA100 GPU: Nvidia 6600 256MB SPU: Audigy SE Also I've heard that only a few types of printers work with Vista. If anyone knows which types could you tell me.

I did Windows Upgrade Advisor and it said Home Basic. I meet the Premium Requirements in most areas. What part of my hardware should I upgrade so I can get Home Premium.

I've run the Vista Upgrade Advisor before, at it told me the best version for my PC would be Basic. And thats with the following specs:

Pentium 4 3.0Ghz HT 1GB DDR2-400 Geforce 7300GT 256MB SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS

I would say your system would be on the Home Basic level as well. I thinks its sad that Vista needs such high hardware requirements to run well with Aero and all the eye candy.....

I think that my system is gonna do fine. I'm getting Home Premium cuz I need more than the Basic version. Yeah the eye candy will make a lot of people angry when their systems lag. But at least Microsoft actually made a Windows version that isn't totally dull looking.

If you tell us which bits didn't meet the Premium requirements then maybe we can give you some advice on it?

The requirements for Vista seem a bit outrageous? I mean, it's supposed to be worse than OS X Leopard, but still requires more out of your PC...?

I would stick with basic, I'm sure basic and premium are like XP Pro and Home - no real noticeable difference.

I'd stick with XP if I was you.

What extra requirements have you seen for Leopard? do tell.
