    The graphics chip is the component that may give the most problem. But, even the crappiest of all current graphics chipsets, the Intel 950, can handle Aero so long as you allocate enough ram to it.

    FYI: madami pang built-in graphics sa Pinas na gumagamit ng Unichrome at Sis Mirage... that makes it really really sad kasi obsolete kaagad sila kahit nasa new PCs... anyway may option naman na discreet graphics card... yun nga lang AGP usually ang mga to...

    I'm not sure kung may T&L na ginagamit sa Windows Aero pero kung puro Pixel Shaders lang pwede ng pumasa ang Intel GMA...

    I think Geforce 6100 and Radeon Xpress will at least provide you some upgrade path in the future considering they are PCI-e already....

    to run vista smoothly it is better to invest in a nice GPU para walang hassle.

    Not really. So long as it is a recent GPU, Vista should be ok. Of all the recent video chipsets, the Intel GMA 950 is probably the crappiest. Yet, it should handle Aero just fine.

    1mb of ram is ok. But it's better to go with 2gb (just to be safe). Make sure you set the allocated ram for your video to at least 128mb. You do know the GMA 950 gets its ram from your system ram unlike dedicated video cards which comes with their own. So, the more ram, the better.

    I'm not sure if Vista RC1 will still be a ram hog. But there was an improvement from Build 5600 to Build 5728 here. Perhaps, the retail product won't be too bad.

    Otherwise, you're set.

    Vista Ultimate RC1 without the ATI beta drivers revert back to Vista Basic. That is, without Aero. It's not too bad, I suppose. But, clicking the "Switch Between Windows" button gives this. Pretty much standard XP behavior.

    Way to go. Trying to make me look old, eh? It sounds so strange......

    I'm not well-versed in PS. But, does it still use a "scratch disk"? If it does, then you'll need as much ram as you can throw at it.
