You shouldn't need to buy an OS. Firstly you need to check and make sure that your computer is using AMD, NOT INTEL. Personally I'd suggest you using an Athlon 64 since older motherboards will generally not be able to use the full speed of that processor.(my 2007 mobo can't use the full speed of an X4 or X3 but can use all the speed of X2) As for your graphics card, find one that has a PCI interface. You will not be able to use the fancy new expensive graphics cards mainly because PCI-Express came out in 2004.
Hey I was wondering if it's possible to put in an AMD Phenom x3 triple core processor and a new, better video card into my old computer
All I really know about my computer right now is that it's a Compaq and I'm pretty sure it's about a 2000 or 2001 model
It also runs windows xp home edition
Is It possible to do that?
And if so, would I have o buy a new OS for my computer to run?
Thanks in advance
