What Graphic card do i need if i want to use Aero on Windows 7?
I've upgraded my Dell Dimension 3000 from XP to Windows 7. everything is working fine, with the exception of the screen resolution being too big to fit my screen, and the Aero transparency not working. currently i have Intel 865G Graphics Chip Accelerated VGA bios, my question is what graphic card would i need in order to run the windows aero effect? also i would prefer to be directed towards a somewhat economical graphics card. any help is most appreciated. thanks. I'm not planning to make it into a gaming pc, but i might have a couple of emulators on it like a sega dreamcast and a gamecube. i just want it to be able to run the aero effect thanks. p.s. i tried the windows 7 upgrade advisor prior to installing it but the d**n thing wouldn't run.
