    The latest Windows 8 is not really resource hungry and if a system is windows7 compatible it can install windows8 without hassle.

    The minimum requirments for installing Win8 are as follows:
    1. processor with 1 ghz minimum speed, with PAE,NX and SSE2.
    2. RAM - 1gb for 32 bit win8, 2 gb for 64 bit win8.
    3. HDD - 16 gb for 32 bit win8, 20 gb for 64 bit win8 installation.
    4. Graphics card- direct X 9 and above with WDDM driver.

    Anything below it will not let windows 8 install.
