My old Vista (Yes Vista) socket 775 system is getting on my wife's nerves with all the BSOD's. It's only used for internet & email.

System specs:
Antec 900/CORSAIR CMPSU-620HX PSU
GIGABYTE GA-X38T-DQ6/E6750/Thermalright 120 extreme
Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A2133C11R 2x4GB 8GB DDR3-2133
PNY 8800GT

It really only needs an SSD so the question I have is, Home or Pro?

Cheaper one.
You sure that dying 8800 GT, or too little NB Voltage aren't causing those BSODs ?

Also, get her a proper quad core for love of everything sane in this world (even a Q6600/Q6700 will be fine).

Wait, that isn't how the options work.

You either have retail or OEM. And you also have Home or Pro.

You can get Pro in either OEM or Retail versions. You can get Home in either OEM or Retail versions. I personally would go with Windows 10 Pro OEM. And it should run just fine on that system.

Don't bother buying a key for that machine.

PM me. I can give you a Win 7 key that will activate with Win 10.

As far as the blue screens go, there's a lot that can be wrong. The GPU is probably on its way out and it is a miracle that it has lasted this long. It could be the RAM and it could also be the motherboard. It's an old system, anything goes...

Where are you located...?

Was using this to interpret the crash dumps but for some reason only 2 out of the many were recorded. The two that were recorded recommended chkdsk so that's what it's doing now.

Yeah I posted this in haste so I fixed it thanks.

NY.

The RAM is only 3 years old but I'll probably run a memcheck.

Not worried about anything overheating. This is a pic of the system:
I plan on tearing it down and applying new TIM. Maybe even a quad cpu since they are dirt cheap on ebay.
(Yeah, it still has the original TIM lol)

Oh, that SATA cable is probably going to get damaged soon...

But switching to Quad Core, with maybe DX11/12 class GPU would be good idea (since those have newer playback acceleration than DX10 stuff). SSD is also a good choise.

I have my 775 Build with Windows 10 Pro and runs great with a 750Ti 2GB. The CPU is a Modded Xeon E5450 which you can get at Aliexpress but only a couple of MB's can support the cpu. The owner to which I bought from has a list of workable Motherboards (mainly it has to do with the chipset) Support List | Buy

Is this the one that's supposed to be comparable to the QX9770?

Gpu or ram at this rate.

You won't like the gui of 10 or its bloatware and forced bugged updates. Keep Vista or go Windows 7/Linux

As for the motherboard drivers, Gigabyte says Windows 7 for one, XP for the other. From what I'm reading Windows 10 has no problem with older drivers. True?

why is the graphics card in the bottom slot ? i would move it to the top
I think it was because back then I didn't have enough fans so I used the PSU fan to pull air through the heat sink. But that was when I was overclocking it. It worked out so I left it. There is also a fan on the lower front of the case that was pushing air to the heat sink as well.

I'm going to install this driver and see if it clears the BSOD up. If not I'll just get a new cheap card.

Guy Guys How about Y'all try Driver-Booster instead of the OEM website Drivers. So much Faster/Easier (NO this is no a AD) Been using it for a year now with no BSOD! "Blue-Screen-of-DEATH"

That software is not like others with Malware "During the install it'll ask to install crap that most people don't read/look"

Guy Guys How about Y'all try Driver-Booster instead of the OEM website Drivers.
ROFL
Nvidia's driver download is so limited vs. other driver installers out there... it's weird anyone uses it during NV GPU driver installation :roll:

Installed the Nvidia driver. If it's stable with no BSOD's for a week or two I'll go ahead with the SSD & Windows 10 upgrade.
