i have been going at this topic for quite a bit now. i am in a situation where i don't have enough money to buy all new parts and software. i recently upgraded my dell studio xps 7100 to the stats in the cpu-z validator below, but it is not fast enough for me. the only thing that i have not upgraded is the harddrive, motherboard, and cpu.
i would like to do crossfire, put the dell mobo only has one pci-e, so i would like to upgrade to a asus crosshair v, but i don't have the money for new software.
if i where to buy another copy of windows 7 and put it on a ocz agility, would all my programs and files still be accessible and working. or do i even need to get windows seven again. somebody said that i can do a install repair, but i don't have windows 7 disk, so will the recovery disk work? or can i just get a copy of windows and use that to repair my old windows?
I really need help. like i said, i am limited on money and i don't want to get in the situation where i have to keep buying to make it work
