What will Vista require for video cards?

Question

There appears to be some concerns about Video Cards for Vista. I have a - "NVIDIA GeForce4 MX440 64 MB DDR (VGA) AGP8x video adapter" in my system. Does it meet the higher standard??

Is there a place where you can lookup Vista's minimums???

Thanks,

Andy

This question was answered on May 9, 2006. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

The current released minimum requirements for vista to take advantage of all of Vista's graphical schemes are as follows:

* DirectX 9 framework

* Windows Display Driver Mode

* 32 bits per pixel depth with 64MB of graphics RAM

* 2.4GHz processor

* 512MB RAM

* Graphics card capable of handling Windows Presentation Foundation

Sticking to just the classic theme, at least as of right now according to microsoft, will allow you to run it with the "classic" windows theme.
