Everything Passed Exept:

RAM
Video Card


But,that is for Vista Home Premium,So does that still mean i can run it?

I Think i will because i wont be using aero and if i cut it down with Vista Lite Tool i will be able to run it with 512mb RAM.

The recommended requirements I posted are for basic, have a look here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...uirements.mspx

And remember those are the recommended specs, the minimum is lower, except for the memory.

Minimum requirements:
* 800 MHz processor and 512 MB of system memory
* 20 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space
* Support for Super VGA graphics
* CD-ROM drive

I really think you should just build a new computer.
1.6Ghz P4-M -> 2.5 ghz + dual core
512mb DDR -> 1gb would be decent
Ati Radeon 7000 16mb -> atleast 256mb
30gb hdd -> for your entertainment needs around 90
