    Ok so I'm gonna have the cheek to ask you all if one of you have an old/unused XP Home key laying around that you don't use no more?

    I think I should explain myself now. My mums partner's brother is mentally disabled and for the past few year's I've had the joy's of repairing his PC however it's getting a little old, 8 years to be exact. Well anyways I've now got enough parts together to make him a new rig just his Windows XP Home key (OEM) doesn't work on the new build so I'm really after a new key.

    I'll be honest with you guy's, I really don't want to be paying much for a key, if at all as this really is just to help a friend out.


    Now some of you are probably thinking I'm chatting shi... but once the build is up and running at his place I'll ofcourse post some pics of him (Stuart) and his new rig.

    :rockout:

    Build list:

    3x 1Gb DDR2 800
    Some Asus Motherboard I've yet to collect from a local friend
    AMD 6000+ x2
    160Gb Sata II Hitachi HDD
    Generic 400w PSU
    Case - The only part so far I need to buy.
