Okay I'll try that out thanks.  :)
I think they should introduce reflections for objects to have a mirror effect and it should work with transparency for more life-like glass

We used to have that. Still do, but it doesn't work. Set RenderDynamicReflections to TRUE.

And yes, there is. Windows is the worst to compile for. Expect to be there for a few hours setting things up, and another few actually compiling it.
Meep.

You need a non-integrated GPU - as it stands, you're just above the bottom of the supported range. And possibly a faster processor, more RAM and such, since you didn't specify what you had there.

"Non-integrated" as in it's on its own card. Any form of upgrade you obtain will match this definition. You'll also discover you get an extra 32MB of RAM when you do so (you have 1024, but 32 have been hijacked by the GPU). Although for SL to really be happy you need a new computer. I shall quote Runitai Linden:

Quote from: Runitai Linden
I'm not going to apologize for it, and
I'm not going to pander to people who think a 3 year old architecture
should receive as much support and attention as current offerings.

The way I see it, if you don't care enough about graphics to keep and
maintain an up to date system, you shouldn't expect to experience
significant graphics improvements.  If I invest resources to supporting
an old chip that's being phased out, I get a much lower return on that
investment than if I would have put those resources into a chip that's
becoming mainstream.  The number of installed GeForce 7's in the world
is decreasing while the number of GeForce 8's is increasing, and I don't
expect GeForce 7's to make a comeback.

Now, before the over reaction machine spins up and I get an e-mail about
an open letter from the cheapskates of the world, this doesn't mean
Second Life is going to be GeForce 8 only, just that you'll need that
kind of card if you want the absolute best experience.  Second Life will
still run on that POS laptop your boss let you take out of the recycling
bin at work.
Meep.

Ach thing is though i don't have £500 odd quid tucked away for a new computer (come to think of it my moneys drying up quick since parents stopped my allowance). And personally i'm not too sure i want to run windows vista I've heard too much bad stuff about it and current easy to use Microsoft programs i find harder to use than the complicated ones although i am gradually growing used to them. the other thing is this computers about 2 years old which considering it was a v good one when it was bought seems o be a bit of a monatomus cycle although i am hoping to save up to upgrae/buy a new computer.... not meant as a having a go at anything just my 2ps worth

It wasn't a very good one when bought. I can tell you that from the specs you gave compared to what was around two years ago. :P

And who would that be having a go at? Microsoft?
Meep.

It sounds like it is a general complaint against Moore's Law-it's increasingly difficult to keep up with technological advances.

Hmm. But as technology advances everything they add to their already very usefull peices of technology will not be as important, so you only really need to keep technology just in your eye-sight. Of course it is possible that we come to complete technological advance and no longer have anything to upgrade
