Default Re: Ultimate Budget Build

So if I built that for my grandpa but installed vista x64 on it, there wouldn't be a problem with the video? It is strong enough? Just making sure the bit where the icons disappear for a second doesn't happen when you move a window over and off them. Would the Aero color theme work or would he have to use basic? Right now he has a dell with a p4 2.8 and 512MB DDR ram, so he could use an upgrade.

It has Vista 64 spec'd for it, so I'd assume Trotter says it'll work.

Lol, I completely didn't even look at that. I had XP on the mind for some reason.
