Hi all, I’m a newbie so go easy.
I want to upgrade my old AMD XP2400+ PC but want to keep the AGP graphics card(Radeon 9600) and IDE HDD’s and IDE dvd writers.
The kit I have my eye on is the Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 or E4400, ASRock PT880 motherboard and 2gb of DDR 2 5300.
I also have a PCI SCSI card with 3 other hard drive running from it that I MUST keep and a Creative Audigy 2 sound card that I would like to keep, unless the on board sound is acceptable.
The main worry I have is that I will have to format my C drive, this I really don’t want to do as I would loose my AnyDVD and Clone DVD programs that I have full licences for, but have lost both activation keys due to a corrupt Outlook archive file
Do any of you think that I could get away with just installing the new kit and plugging everything in and hoping that the system will boot (XP Pro) or will this create more problems.
I’m desperate to upgrade as my old PC is now really struggling to keep up with what I want it to do.
Any help would be greatly welcome.
