Some people say they have a lot of problems with it and compatibility issues, but i have it on a computer at work, and on my laptop, and i haven't had the slightest problem. On my laptop i have 1gb ram also (which im upgrading in a few days though, but it ran very well with 1gb, im only upgrading because i want it to run a bit smother, but im picky)

Do I really need a video card as I am not going to be doing any gaming?

Don't talk about that here man. Besides an OEM XP Service Pack 2 CD is liek 85$ so its more then affordable. But if that is too much for you, you can always get Ubuntu for free online. Which believe it or not is not illegal and also has its own form of Microsoft Office.
