My concern is that alot of these newer models of mobos and CPUs are too advance to run under Windows XP pro. I tried a few weeks back with a new build (with help from a salesperson), but kept running into problems. My final problem was the os would start loading then give me a 'hard error' on a blue screen. So I returned it all since no one could give me a reason for this happening.
I signed up here after hearing about it through other friends, and I must say, the people on here have been a great help with information unknown to me. So here we go:
I have a cakewalk Sonar 5 Producer that only works well on XP.
I know I can only get 4GB ram from Windows XP pro.
I've read that a dual core is all I really need to run this well. (only for studio use, no games)
So can anyone let me know if there is anything to avoid when making a build for XP pro?
The build I'm looking to setup with compatible ram:
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black
Gigabyte GA-M68MT-D3 w/ NVidia 7025
G.Skill 2GB X 2 (4GB) 1333Mhz Memory
Western Digital 1TB Serial ATA/300 7200rpm 32MB buff
Lite-On DVD/CD Burner
Antec 500w Power Supplie
Cool Master Elite Mid-Tower Case
