Hmm, good idea. I have two HDD's in my current computer. One is like 150-160 GB, the other is 250 (only 5400 RPM though?) and is a secondary drive with no OS. I can keep the secondary drive, clean off the first HDD and install my current XP on the secondary drive. The XP Disc that I have though says "To be sold with a new Dell Computer only" and is OEM, does this mean it will not work for any computer I plan to make in the future?
I can probably sell the CD-Drives with this PC as my dad has a CD-Drive for a Christmas gift anyways, so, this'd still be a whole PC I could still eBay off. The PSU is only 250W and the case is small, so, I wouldn't keep it. I'm not a huge fan of gaming but I'd like something that could keep up with the latest and greatest as I still DO game, maybe a mobo with dual PCI-e x16 (though that'd probably be expensive). I found a mobo that was only $300 that had dual PCI-Express 2.0. I could probably get a mediocre PC at the moment with a very nice mobo like that, get a lower end GPU, a good but easily upgradeable CPU and memory doesn't cost a ton but I'd get like 2GB and a 3rd for later and just upgrade it all when I get more money
My PC was made in 2004, is that too old?
