With XP being phased out in April 2014 I have a reasonable pc running XP and would like to upgrade to Windows 7. The PC in question is a Dell Dimension E520. My main pc is a Lenovo running 7, this one my wife uses for her photos.what I would like some computer literate person to tell me is the Dell pc compatible with Windows 7?

Fruit Bat , john bunyan , Jock1e Thanks for your answers. I've put extra memory in shortly after buying it & its at 3gb. Is that all thats needed to get 7 to run on this pc?
