Win Xp is recommended . The only problem is that some games only run on Win 7/Vista .
my motherboard is gigabyte 945GZM-S2
that board will be fine with 7.
Which version of windows 7 is most light, which is better in old games xp or 7. mean in 2006-7-8-9
I've used XP black edition, back in the day when it was first created it was exceedingly useful for those junky netbooks when they first came out with 8gb hard drives and a single core made of cardboard. Black Edition is a bit of a hinderance, as you lose a hell of a lot of features. While it's lightweight and will free up a lot of system resources, I would stick with XP Pro, as you might want some of those features. 7 is out of the question if you want to play games as well.
personally, i would use win xp standard version sometimes modded version has "bugs"
the last time i use modded version i cant update the vga driver every i updated it it would be 256 color. so i suggest standard version except you are sure that its clean from any err
Black edition isnt modded, its more like a gimped version of XP. Like windows 7 is to Vista. They tore out its insides.
Why is everyone goin on about gimped versions windows and that that computer is too slow for 7?? it will run it without any problems.
"XP black" is illegal software choc full of malware, so the obvious choice is to not use it. Ever. You may as well get a retail licence (not oem) for Windows 7, then when you get your new computer you can remove it from the old one and put it on your new one.
Not to be a jerk but anyone recommending XP is crackers. Microsoft is ending support next April so security updates will NOT be available. Win7 works fine and you will enjoy it plus driver support will not be there.
