use 32Bit, disable all graphical extras (fades/animations/themes) and go through the services.msc list (blackcat used to have a list of what could be disabled) and it'll work all right. Not miracles, but it'll work good enough for browsing & light videos. Mine (3GHz single core with 1GB ram Gateway) will play 480 youtube res videos in 'large' window. higher res or full-screen don't play nice. Also using the MS security essentials.
if it says it needs more ram to install, thats all it needs it for. I have seen 7 on 512MB ram... just wow tho. suggest a new system or more ram.
