can't imagine other peripherals would matter, but will have a sata hd,
dvd burner, pci modem and old pci soundblaster if I can make it work.
Have both XP and Win 7 disks. Most of my programs are 5+ years old, and
made for XP. Still partial to XP after using both.
Will be a replacement for 8 yo desktop.
Most stressful task will be streaming online video to a HDTV.
What I've read seems XP drivers are still pretty much included and not
difficult to install.
Pointers on above ponderings appreciated.
I don't know how you plan to stream video to HDTV, but I bought
a PC to TV gizmo that goes in between the computer output in
the VGA line and the monitor, then run a cable to a PVR with
an upconverter to my HDTV that does a great job.
This is what I've got.
