Specs: Vista Ultimate, SP2, 3.0Ghz/2Ghz
Does anyone know if the Intel Core Duo E8400 processor will work with Windows 7? I am currently running Vista 64 bit OS so I would think that it does but I wanted to ask to make sure. Thanks.

That should not be a problem, especially if they work with your motherboard. I would recommend that you go to your motherboard web site and make sure that there are Windows 7 drivers for it available, Then go to AMD/Radeon site and make sure that there are drivers available for your graphics card for Windows 7. If the drivers exist then you have no problem. This is the general procedure to answer this question.

I have had E8200 running with Windows 7 for many years on a Gigabyte P43 series motherboard. As long as you have at least a G41 series MB it should be fine though a P43 or P45 would be overall better. I am not as sure about the older chipset motherboards with Windows 7.

I've determined that the video card and monitor will work with Windows 7. The motherboard is an Asus P5Q Deluxe and from the link provided above by riider I believe it will work also.

AS long as Asus provides Windows 7 drivers for the motherboard then it is very easy. That is all you need to verify, if the drivers are available, I recommend downloading the drivers for all hardware onto a flash drive (use another computer) so as soon as Widows is installed, you can immediately do the driver install It will save you the trouble of doing it with a machine not fully functional.

Thanks that's a good tip. Actually, I was going to download the drivers to the Vista partition and access them from there but I like your idea even better, though it may be a tad slower.

Please look at this site: https://www.asus.com/support/Downlo...

It lists the drivers for the Asus P5Q Deluxe motherboard. I downloaded the Chipset, Audio, Sata and Ethernet drivers. What else do I need to download? It's not necessary to download everything is it? Thanks.

There are others you may need to consider but you will at least need the LAN driver initally so if needed you can download anything else you need.
