Oooh not too good. You should probably stick to XP then.
Unless you can afford an upgrade of sorts.

Why is that?

I have W7 on 2GB DDR2 and there's nothing wrong with it.

beacuse windows takes 1-1.5 gigs of ram leaving you with not much else.

I thought with windows 7 its idle usage would vary depending on your total RAM, I have 4gb and with steam + opera open im using about 1.2gb. I also have a friend whose using win 7 with just the 1gb but he is a bit wreckless with this type of thing

We won't really know until final release, but if they can get compatibility right, then Win7 should be good for gamers.

Windows 7 is already in final version and I haven't seen any compatibility problems.
