Hi y'all. My goal is to build a desktop PC with Windows XP 32-bit to play older games like VietCong. I don't want compatibility problems with Windows 7/compatibility mode, dual booting/virtual machine & such. Price range is about a few hundred dollars total (I have a few old components I'll use). I am going to buy LGA 775 components to match the hardware/software. But I wonder about newer components like LGA 1156, LGA 1155, or even LGA 1366, LGA 2011... basically would there be any problems at all using these newer components with Windows XP 32-bit (for older games)? Thank you

I don't expect it would be a problem, but it would be best to make sure each component you want actually has Windows XP drivers to download from their site.
There should be XP support for most modern parts today, but like Wolfshadw said simply checking each component that you consider is the best way to be sure that your system will work.
