What a load of crap, philo!

I liked reading your posts, but not after this garbage of you saying NEW

Obviously, you don't know how to build anything!

You missed something.
The guy bought a machine on ebay.

Sure, one could take an older machine and add a lot of RAM and a high end

I've done a three month evaluation of Vista and stand by my statement
that it's really an OS for the newest H/W out there.

A dual core CPU, 2 gigs of RAM and a high end video card are really needed
to take full advantage of all of Vista's features.

XP is the best choice I'm sure.

It's a big mistake to get caught in the upgrade game.
Better to save your money for the next tank of gas!

I just bought a PC from e-bay it appears the windows xp is not genuine

If the machine is old enough that it came with XP...
it will not run Vista very well, so forget that idea.

Vista is best for new computers only
