    How does this stuff look for a decent computer capable of some gaming?

    Do i need to purchase a Windows XP or can i use an old recovery DVD from my previous computer?

    Does it all work together ? :noes:

    get a better power supply than that one. your video card is the key to gaming... any 3000+ AMD 64 and up has plenty of gaming power. you either need to buy XP or download/burn an image from somewhere, your recovery disc will not format/install a new pc.

    same, but that still doesnt give anyone the right to pirate it.

    don't like it, dont use it. use bsd instead.
