    Its a pretty OLD system... Go for a 120gb - it'll be more likely to not give you any problems, since youre using WinXP.

    Sockey 370 CPUs were made in the days of 600~1200mhz CPUs (1999~2001) and HDs were typically 8~20GB.

    My numbers are not exact, but issue points are:

    2gb = FAT limit / go to FAT 32
    8gb = older systems limit (486/some P1s)
    16gb = End of Fat32's decent cluster size.
    64gb = MAX of fat 32 support (must partition & use fdisk update)
    128gb = Some older hardware, doesn't support 120GB + XP patch.

    The ram is 128 but I will get her to upgrade that. Yes, It will be the only hd on the computer. and as far as going with that size, her old hd is damaged and since she's having to replace it I figured for the price, might as well get as much as you can for the money.
    Thanks for your advice!
