not too sure if it will work on nvidia graphics card but it should as it works with intel CPU's.

but my system is a bit of a let down. my graphics card is a bit too.

LOL. For minimal configuration it accepts nVidia. But for any other (recommended or top) it says I need to upgrade to ATI card

Passed everything except the graphics card - only 128MB when the optimal is 256MB.

You can try Micro$oft's own Vista readiness calculator here: ]http//ww…spx

Mind you with DRM, WGA, applications running upto 3x slower in Vista than under XP, and reduced gaming performance, there's no way I'll be 'upgrading' to Vista.

Oh dear, looks like im not ready, didnt even get pass the minimum requirements. Need to upgrade the graphics card.

It'll do for now, ill wait til the deals start to appear on vista ready pc's.

Same here a duff graphics card..but I was aware of that because it is ancient.

just to put a spanner in the works, does any one care if they are vista ready or not?

when vista is released it will still be full of bugs and cost a bomb!!!

Price will be about £150 for the basic version...yes it will probably take time to rid it of the inevitable bugs...but I cannot resist when a new Windows system is issued....that's why I'm waiting until its release before I purchase a laptop.
