Hi everyone,

I'm about to buy a new very ordinary desktop with:

AMD A4 3300
Gigabyte A 55M-DS2
500 HD
E-mag Casing with 500w PSU

Can I install XP 64 bit on this desktop?

I wouldn't be so sure about that.

I honestly can't recommend getting such an out of date operating system, yes XP was good but it is phasing out. Do you really want the hassle of struggling to look for old outdated drivers etc every time you install something?

I would very much reconsider your position here.
