so i got my new setup and my current is going to my brother as part of my deal with my rents to give my brother a "new" comp with working os.
now should i give him everything, including hdd, and refresh windows leaving him with an activated one and then buy myself a new hdd with a 50 visa gc and install the xp on that leaving myself with 30 days the activate and hope when i go back to school i can get a job?
or do i give myself the activated version and try to buy him xp later
currently i have an ide 80 gb hdd, if i were to buy a new one it would be a sata with at least 160gb
My setup: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+, 2Gb A-data ddr800, MSI K9A2 CF 790X, MSI 2600XT T2D512EZ, Samsung DVD-RW, Ultra 500W PS Vseries, Maxtor 80Gb, Aspire Mid-tower case, Windows xp Home, Westinghouse 19" LCD
