    It certainly should since it meets the required specs, 128MB of memory and
    onboard DX9 and shader level supports.

    I had a FX 5200 (not EVGA however) and was able to run aero on it . Starting
    with build 5744 and RTM it would not display glass by default, however (I
    guess it does this with less than 1GB RAM. There is a work around available:

    1/ Ensure that you have the following registry value set to :

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\Composition set to 1 (32-bit DWORD)

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\CompositionPolicy set to 2 (32-bit DWORD)

    2/ Restart DWM by opening a command prompt with administrative privileges :

    - Type 'net stop uxsms'
    - Then 'net start uxsms'

    Hope this helps,

    You got a 50/50 chance. My GeForce FX Go5600 on my notebook doesn't run
    Aero, but you may have more luck with a desktop..
