System Requirements for 7

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

Ok, so I have a Dell Optiplex SX260 that I am going to use as a media center PC.
Ram - 1 GB... good
Processor - 2.4 GHz... good
Oh.. forgot to mention.. the Dell has no DVD drive. Have not figured out how to install 7 on it...yet...
Hard Disk - 20GB... good... except.. I dun have anymore HD space to store my ISO files. Gotta use a USB External Drive.
XP Still has some uses, but I do agree, this is all I've got XP on. Love it but alas, I must move on as 7 is sooooo much better at the functions of a multimedia pc.
