Now since windows 8 consumer preview has been launched :razz:I want to test it on my system.
Currently I am using windows xp. My motheboard is Asrock G31-MS. It has intel G31 chipset. I DO NOT have any separate graphics card. I have a dual core intel 1.6ghz processor and 1gb of ram.
Please tell me if I can windows 8 on my computer. Also if yes, how much partion space will it need minimum?
Thanks

Graphics Card is required for the animations to work in the home screen. Also mouse navigation is not smooth.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows 7:

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster

RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)

Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device or higher

To use touch, you need a tablet or monitor that supports multitouch

To access Windows Store and to download and run apps, you need an active Internet connection and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768

To snap apps, you need a screen resolution of at least 1366 x 768

G31 supports DX9 so you can use it.

@ OP - if possible get another 1/2GB ram module to get a much smoother windows 8 experience ;-)
