I would like some advice on a SFF build project.
I'm looking at building a gaming rig around the AMD 3000 939. I would like to reuse the HD, graphics card, and memory from the PC-1 machine in my sig to save $.
The first question is, will I be able to reinstall XP in the new build? Or will XP decide this is a new PC and I need to buy another copy?
Can anyone recommend a barebones system to use that will let us do this project for less than $500?
It's for my son and his main games now are World of Warcraft, Battlefield 2, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault, Half Life 2 and Counterstrike Source.
TIA for your help.
