You don't I've tried it on a 256MB RAM mode and it worked (Putting a 256MB stick and removing the others)

I hope you guys that are using minimum RAM do plan on upgrading to more RAM when the actual Vista comes out into retail. I'm just concerned for system speed and overall system stability when the OS is being used at it's potential. I hope you guys don't plan on playing BF2 using that kind of RAM numbers though. Remember that more RAM is better (depending on what you are doing, of course).

Sigh...I have 1024mb ram...but the pci-e video card needed is bull. I will have one in my next system Although I like XP so it'll be a while until I upgrade..

ALSO, riddle me this....since most factory made computers that are standard use AGP...then wouldn't most standard factory made pc's still have xp which is "old school" on them?

Yeah, I'd hate to have standard dell computers outrank mine...that'd be horrible! Computer illiterate people shouldn;t be allowed to use a PC with more than 512mb ram!!!!

Windows vista will not require a pci-e video card, and at the most 512mb of ram.
