1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

1 GB of system memory

40 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space

Gigahertz is used to describe a CPU's clock speed. Hard drives are measured in gigabytes, and I'm gonna assume you don't have a 1.1 GB hard drive, and that you are actually talking about your processor. If that's the case, I'd be nervous going with Vista Ultimate because those requirements you listed said it needs 1 GHz, which I'm going to assume is the bare minimum. I get nervous going with bare minimums for requirements.

I think that it means you have to have a graphics card that supports DirectX 9. I'm not positive though. What kind of graphics card do you have?

- try going here & see if it helps. You might need a newer version of Direct X installed and i think this link will help you get the best version you can on your PC.

I went to school for computer science, but I just got a 2 year degree which focused more on software...but I also worked on campus as a tech, so I learned some stuff...but I'm envious of those geeks who really know their stuff!!

Just a little FYI, to find out what graphics card you have, do this:

My Computer > Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > Display Adapters

I've not done an upgrade to vista unfortunately so i can't say for sure, but it should stay on your computer when you do.
