comment Will 128MB video card be enough for Windows 7 Aero with two 720p monitors connected?
thank you. More than a year my parents are using GeForce 7300GS with 256MB of VRAM. One screen is 1024x768. Another one was 1366x768. And recently they have got new TV with 1920x1080 resolution. It is working perfectly well. Offloading some decoding to GPU so they can watch 720p movies without a hitch. Aero is too working flawlessly on both screens. Thank you.

Thank you Karan. Due to your answer I've chosen 256MB card. I will fully test it and report back if this question will not be closed. Meanwhile I'm marking your answer as accepted.

I don't believe this question should be closed. I'm asking about Microsoft recommendation or minimum specs for Aero and that was fully answered by Karan Raj Baruah and I'm asking about first hand experience with h.264 decoding on that cards in multimonitor configuration — and if frames are dropped or not is not an opinion is just a fact. So I don't see anything opinion based about this question and believe it had to be open

As I've seen and understand Aero when using with compatible card does help with offloading UI operations from CPU a bit. So it's not that it's eye candy only it does improve performance.

Guys, I do understand hardware is old. But it's still fine for the tasks my parents using computer for. It's even okey for youtube) I just want to overcome slowdowns caused by current VGA that has no WDDM driver and limited performance in Windows 7.
