Default visual studio system requirements

Please don't laugh to hard at this question, I am an apple guy and I am not strongly familiar with PCs. I am purchasing a PC and I want to run visual studio. On the microsoft web site they say the system requirements are for a 450-megahertz (MHz) Pentium II-class processor, 600-MHz Pentium III-class processor recommended. Does anybody know if you can run visual studio on a computer with a Intel® Celeron® D Processor 320 (2.40GHz, 256KB, 533MHz FSB) is there a difference?

Peace
Mike

Celeron will be fine.
PII and PIII are now very old.
PIV and Celeron are same except for different cache size, sorry dont no the details.

If you have not purchased yet, get PIV, not Celeron.

Hi Mike

No laughing, imagine us on a mac :-)

Whatever, the only huge difference with the celeron vs pentium processor is the way it handles the rounding of floating points which should not be a huge problem unless you do some real scientific stuff.

If Microsoft says "Minimum Requirements" it directly translates to " On a PC with this-and-that specs, our application WILL NOT run!". TrustMe.

Visual Studio 6 will do fine on your specs. Visual.Net on the minimum specs in your question - no way unless you have a lot of time for smoking and drinking coffee for each compilation is going to take ages!!!

In our language (afrikaans) we've got a saying (translating) "Buying Cheap is Buying expensive!!!"

Regards

I tend to disagree about the PIV vs Celeron.

I understand to have a smaller L2 cache which considerably effects performance.
I could be incorrect with this, but I have seen much anecdotal evidence to back this up.
I would suggest investigating some legitamate benchmark tests, Im sure there are plenty of comparisons on the net.

The $ difference between PIV and Cel are not that great.
I would never buy a Celeron over PIV.

I think that processors aside, work on the memory. You shouldn't run a windows dev environment with anything less than 512Mb of RAM. If it comes down to money, spend the extra cash on memory rather than cycles.

Thanks everybody, I did go ahead and get the PIV. I will add more memory but I wanted to at least get processor that would be up to par.

One other question on the subject of system requirements. What editor do a majority of developers use for ASP.Net. I didn't realize the Visual Studio.Net was so high dollar, how can the little man afford that, there must be something cheaper. I know you can use notepad, but it seems you have to be really familiar with .Net before doing so.



Peace
Mike

You wouldn't happen to be a student would you? If so, you can often find VS.Net for as little as $25.

Otherwise you can use the Web Matrix for free.
