    Hey all.

    If I went out and purchased a Windows XP Pro package, would I be able to install the operating System on my Windows 2000 computer?

    If you need any information to to know, just reply.


    Thanks to anyone who considers it

    It was an IBM business computer and I purchased it from IBM after they no longer needed it.

    I did install the most up to date graphics card.

    That 128MB RAM is what it had in it originally, I gather. But from the previous post (post #8) it seems to have been upgraded.

    From the looks of what your system has got, it should be able to run XP pretty well.

    You can run XP Pro I know someone that is running a 866 P-3 with a gig of ram with XP Pro but you really will be disappointed at the speed loss from 2000 to XP, personally I would just stay with 2000 until I upgraded my PC to a bigger processor model, but this is just my opinion I am sure everyone has their own. ;)
