I have an athlon 3200+ Amd single core cpu with ATI480 motherboard from2007 wih 2gb ram..It works awesome.It has windows xp professional with sp3.
On a second hard drive on the same box i have windows 7. It works fine although I don't like it /use it very often when I boot the pc up.
I am going to buy a new pc and after doing much research have settled on an Intel cpu and the question is Would there be any issues with running Windows XP with a Sandy Bridge processor?
Specifically a quad core i5-2500K processor which after much research seems to be very good in price and performance.
Has anyone here installed xp on a intel sandy bridge cpu/motherboard and what were the results?
I have asked other people but they keep going on and on that I should use windows 7 & 8 even after I told them i want xp to be the main system.
Some people say it is impossible to install xp on sandy bridge cpu/motherboard.
Also the motherboard should also have 1 IDE hard drive drive connector to allow older pata as a secondary data drive.
