    @Irascian:I absolutely agree with you. The upgrade advisor is absolute crap or rather a Sham! I ran it from Vista Ultimate with Aero and Flip 3d enabled. Everything abt Ultimate is working in my Notebook but believe it or not the upgrader crap gave me a warning icon stating that my Nvidia 256 Mb graphics card needs upgrading as it may not support the Windows Aero experience. WTF??? I am sure the capitalistic Monopolistic Microshit Big Bully is at its best ever rip off game!All of you do yourself a favour: DONT EVER BASE YOUR DECISION OF A VISTA UPGRADE USING THE ADVISOR. ITS PLAIN RIP OFF AND NOTHING ELSE. As far I am concerned any damn PC bought a couple of years ago will be able to run Vista with AERO turned on. All thats needed is the Memory which shuld be 1 gb at the minimum and a WDDM driver supported graphics card. IMHO, This is a min configuration of a Multimedia PC even in the XP environment. Unless you have damn Old comp which you use to dry soiled currency notes, Vista should run on a Notebook PC with the foll spec:1 Ghz Processormin 1 Gig of RAM (This is what will make all the diff)A decent Graphics card.(No need to elaborate this point!)and you are thru to run that new (I need to watch my language)! 

    Take a deep breath and tell me how "capitalistic Monopolistic Microsoft Big Bully" is supposed to benefit from overestimating your system requirements.

    I have a nearly 4 year old Radeon 9600, Upgrade Advisor told me it will run Aero just fine, and here I am running Aero now. So the warning on your card is probably just a glitch.
