can I just upgrade my desktop only change the motherboard, CPU, memory only. I want to keep the case and harddrive and DVD rom. Also, can I keep using the exiting windows OS and all file in my old harddrive ? will the old window XP in my old harddrive find the new hardward ?


Hope someone can help :confused:

Maybe, depends on the upgrade. Backup your files however. It won't delete anything if you upgrade, but it may not work correctly cause you will have different motherboard drivers to deal with. It will most likely work, but with old drivers still in the system cluttering up your hard drive.
