Re: Pci express 1.1 base spec on new mother board for gaming pc ?
Failboat if your computer takes that long to load vista look at other causes, there should be no reason why it would take that long to boot. I agree 1 GB is the min you should use for Vista, but i've used Vista with 1 GB and it was fine.
Freezer I guess i don't understand your question. Are you worried about the PCI x16 slot being too slow for Vista? PCI x16 is the fastest video controller there is at this point, so no it wouldn't be too slow. In fact it would be plenty fast.
With the specs you've mensioned above your computer will run Vista Home Premium w/o any issues at all. The only issue you'll notice is ONCE STARTED the computer may run a little slow because of the lack or RAM. Might want to bump that up to 2 gig.
