Could a hardware upgrade improve vmware on a PC-CHIP Celeron 1.7 ?
Posted on 2004-10-13
I have an Integrated Mobtherboard PC-CHIP 925(Video 32Mb Shared,Sound,Network), with a Celeron 1.7Ghz (128kb on Cache L2) and 256Mb of RAM. An XP Professional as OS (host) on a HDD Maxtor with 40Gb.
I know this machine is very slower for Vmware Workstation, but I wonder if by upgrading the RAM from 256Mb to 512Mb and/or with an ATI Radeon 9200 of 128Mb (not shared) or GForce Apollo 128Mb, will the performance of vmware improve?
