I was reading about how you always have to have a CPU with over 3.5 GHz, and 1.5 GBs of RAM to run vista. The highest stock clock speeds on the Intel Core 2 duo/quad is 3.33 GHz. Without overclocking, would it have difficulty running vista? And in your professional estimate, what would be the hardware requirements of windows 7?

Vista runs well on my 2,4 GHz quad core and 4 Gb memory.
