    Easy Rhino, Thank you for your reply, it is appreciated. We have several programs that are specifically designed for the Window's environment. Email, Internet, and Office applications are easy and I use and try out different ones on an ongoing basis; that is not an issue beyond user learning...

    Arjai, Many thanks as always. Been developing this idea for a while; just over a year now. It is expanding because others are in the same boat too. A little more on that when I respond to blobster21 I would welcome questions; they help develop and clarify my thinking or what may pass as...

    How to get updates for Windows XP until April 2019

    Arjai, First and foremost thank you for your reply. I'd be thrilled to get an i3 at work. Now I am one of the chosen and have 4 GB of RAM and a second disk drive with a lot of room on the server. ;) I'll take what I can get and bring home major projects so I don't have to find a cup of...

    How to get updates for Windows XP until April 2019

    95Viper, In support of your post; if memory serves the change from XP to 7 required many to upgrade hardware and that was years ago; anybody else remember that little compatibility utility? Like it or not a business upgrading to windows 7 or 8 will be expensive. That cost gets passed on to us...

    Need some expert advice

    Cheers all, I am really not looking to open up any debates about the various operating systems available. What I am doing is researching a way to keep using older XP based systems without having to buy hardware or buy new Windows software. Background I've been collecting data about moving...

    Vario, Way cool, thank you again. I've got the link open and will check it out when I get caught up here. If I end up with the Prodigy case this information is very good to know. Still have to sign off and check out the links to other blue cases some kind soul (Vario) provided before I...

    eidairaman1, First and foremost, thank you. My thinking was closed toward AMD chips. Because it was not something I'd considered your recommendation is especially valued. I shall reconsider them based on your recommendation. I have opened the links you provided and will check them out when...

    Vario, Wow, thank you very much, especially for all the research. Yes it is small even if the Prodigy is big in the form factor. If I change cases I am not modding it where it shows. Yea, I can drill holes, they just look shabby. If it were for me I'd mod the heck out of it just to learn how...

    Vario, Once again, thank you! The Silverstone ST65F – G was my second choice because of only fair reviews. It will 100% fit. If you can spare the time would you tell me: 1) How long you have been using it; 2) Is your system on most of the time; and 3) How is its cooling, i.e. is it venting...

    TheBrainyOne, :respect: First and foremost, thank you! That is a line of thought I have not even considered. As such it is valued all the more. The trade offs between upgrade-ability, component quality and cost is a major issue. Whatever I build, it is expected to last a long time; past...

    Micropage 7, :respect:First and foremost thank you! From a lot of YouTube build watching for this case, push pull on the H80i is the plan. I saw it fit on the rear case fan mount point. Not sure about the top rear point with a rear mounted 25mm thick exhaust fan in place, especially as...

    the truth not bullshit, :respect:First and foremost thank you! This may be off topic and if it is I apologize to all. When I upgrade my system (and I am researching that too) I'm planning on going with a 2011 socket, that very same chip (or whatever is out there to replace it in about two...

    Vario, :respect:First and foremost thank you! I actually did use Google and Ask to try and find other blue cases and failed. Must have been a short between the keyboard and seat. o_O I have the provided links open and will check them out after I study the other thoughts and ideas posted...

    Arjai, :respect:First and foremost thank you! You answered my question about using on the chip's graphics before I even got there. :D That actually was a great reassurance. Off topic - I'm having issues getting Boinc to run. :( If there is a way to PM and you can spare the time sure would...

    MxPhenom, :respect:Thank you yet again. The links you provided are open and after I study the other poster's ideas and recommendations (thank them too) I'll start researching them. Old school I guess but there is no such thing as to much RAM so two 8GB high speed sticks from the...

    Good day all, Working on a build as a gift to replace an old Dell; early 2000s vintage. The case needs to be blue so this is my first ITX build. I’d really appreciate fresh eyes on this. The primary use is email and surfing, occasionally family photo level Photoshop use and it will be used...
