    i'm running an intel celeron running @ 3.20Ghz (which runs higher than the most common pentium 4's btw) with 1024mb of RAM (really 960mb, from the 64mb ati radeon x200 uses) and it lags with a good Anti Virus (Avast), of course i am running ultimate. using 1gb on ready boost has helped quite a bit, but moving and deleting files is where the lag is noticeable. everything else runs great. copying, pasting, deleting stuff sucks. i think a lot has to do with Avast as this is my first experience with it.

    i literally boot to my XP if i am going to be moving/cleaning a ton of files.

    i don't think you will be too happy considering XP generally flies with 1gb RAM regardless of processor power...

    i'd think the RAM alone would suffice honestly, but if you've got the funds and the desire upgrading the processor isn't a bad idea.

    acrsn probably knows better than i really, but i'd say you'd be top notch with those specs, seeing as 7 does seem to handle less than 2gb RAM better than vista, so 2gb and higher ought to be running pretty good
