  1. Looks like a good build. Why don't you just format your old hard drive an reinstall the os?
  2. because if I reformat the old one I would need to buy a new OS besides xp will run like crap on my old one. windows 2k, p4 1.6ghz, 128mb ram, ati 8500
  3. But your new build still needs an os, regardless.


    The only Thermaltake psu I'd touch is Toughpower. Expensive? You get what you pay for. Or one of the tier 1/2 psus:
  4. thanks for the ram recommendation. However I hate rebates cause
    I never get them back. I have a no-cd coporate edition xp and an oem vista home premium. I've changes psu to Silverstone ST50EF-Plus
