I must run XP pro 32 bit Sp3 for my PCB cad programs and general home office type use - no gaming, not into videos.
I was looking at a new build using a Gigabyte GA-F2A88x (ATX size) mobo along with a AMD A6-5400K dual core Trinity APU.... will this run my XP pro 32bit with Sp3???
Sometime later I will swap the os for maybe a 64bit os either Windows or Linux, thus the reason I will be getting 8 Gb of RAM. I am aware of RAM limitation with 32 bit operating systems.
Will this cater for my needs? I would be happy to here if there is anything better without going OTT. I really do think a 4 core would be wasted since I do not play game or watch videos.... except U tube clips etc, etc., I do do generals snaps and my single core AMD 2000+ caters excellently.
Yes I am aware that some pages will not load properly I put that down to my CPU instructions.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
