Microsoft reccomends 1ghz processor (I have 1.5ghz) 1gb ram (after upgrade I will have 1.25GB) and 40gb hard disk space (I have 120gb) and a gpu with difectx9 and pixel shader so I don't see why things shouldnt work

256 mb ram, honostly will not make a big improvement. I would recommend in investing in another gig if you can.

i was actually thinking about 512 because right now I can't afford 1gig but sometime down the road when I have more money I will get another 512 and take the 256 I have now out.

A video card WILL help a lot. You FX5500 is a little too slow for it.

um yea, but in xp not vista. with vista theres less free processor space then with xp. besides the fact thats its a very low end processor, u should probably upgrade the processor or find a different program.

edit: is it dvd, or r u downloading it from the internet? = dialup

They are movies that are saved on the computer.

I don't want to give up vista because it's faster than xp for just about everything except videos.

edit: what would be a good cheap video card for this computer?

If you really think about buying one now and then another one later, you will only be paying more in the end. Like I said, you can probably hold off for a little while till you get enough saved to upgrade to the one gig. As I said earlier, 256 will hardly make a difference. 512 will only do a little bit more.
