2.0 GHz processor or better
256 MB RAM if Windows XP, Windows ME, Windows 98, or Windows 2000
At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space

So far I am doing the following

1. Upgrading to 9600 pro
2. Getting more memory/ ram (whatever you wanna call it) 256 stick

A friend checked it for me.

What size of Hard Drive does he have, and you'll probably need to upgrade to a 1.5 Ghz processor or better, but by doing that you' might need a new motherboard if the one you have isnt capable of going that high.

EDIT:www.cpuid.com, Mega could you ask him to download that and post the log?
