Hey, im just wondering, with a graphics card, if it says it is vista ready or vista enabled, will it still work on an XP operating computer??
Thanks
Theo

Welcome to FPH Theo.

Normally when a device says Vista ready, it means that it is designed for both XP and Vista.

To confirm this, go to the card's manufacturer site and see what drivers are available for it. Or, just post the make and model of the card, and one of us here will find the information for you.
