    There is a computer/multimedia company called Tiger Direct that allows you to purchase components you can price the specs you have to see if it is a good price

    http://www.tigerdirect.com/

    Is it a illegal copy of XP if it is that is a bad idea, best to purchase it if you have problems and you dont have the recovery disk you could lose everything and it is illegal
