Default Graphics controller compatibility query (and Vista question)


I'd appreciated a quick bit of advice if anyone can help.

I'm looking to get an MBox 2 Mini running Pro Tools 7.4 (I have Vista) for my laptop. I've done all the compatibility checks, and everything seems to be fine, except one thing.

Instead of having a dedicated graphics controller, my laptop apparently has a "Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Integrated Chipset."

The support page specifically states that computers must have a separate graphics controller, not an integrated one, otherwise Pro Tools might not work properly, but I was wondering - do you think that Pro Tools would work ok with my graphics controller?

Just in case I've mislooked any of the other compatibility information, here is a list of what my laptop has:

Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel (R) Core2Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80 GHz
2038MB RAM
32-bit operating system
Intel(R) 82801 HEM/HMB SATA AHCI controller
Intel(R)ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850
Interl(R) 82801 PCI Bridge - 2448
Chipset - Intel GM965

Oh, and my computer is a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi2515

If anyone could check over these things and let me know if they think I'd be able to run Pro Tools, that'd be much appreciated


P.S. Just reading around, I noticed that some people have mentioned Pro Tools not working all that well with Vista. Could you elaborate? I plan to use it mainly for editing, only recording occasionally.
