Question about HP Computers & Internet
NO ! I would like to know if I can install a larger hard drive and more memory? And would like to get a 500GB hard drive and At lest 600 GB of memory. Also would like the hard drive to have Windows XP on it. Also is it wearth it to do this?
Installing more HD space and memory is always a good thing. But that needs to weighed with the age of the computer. Older computers often will accept the new equipment, but for the price you can get a better computer.
At PassMark you can grade your cpu againt 2000 others. Find out where you are on the CPU food chain before making a decision. Below 500, get a new computer. Above 1200, stay where you are. In between your decision.
A 500 GB HD is a fair size for most users. 1TB is now only @ $100.00. Hd do not come with operating systems on them. Depending on your existing computer you can add a second HD and keep the operating system where it is. Otherwise you need migration software, more money? ( It may come with a new HD?!)
Any computer running on XP can use not more that 4GB, usually only 3-3.5 GB. Vista computers have the same restraint. Windows & can use over 6GB. 600GB, not in this lifetime.
Hope this helps a little.

You can put whatever size hard drive you want in your pc....typically they do not come with operating systems on them when you buy them...they are blank....you can run it as a secondary drive with the one you are already running and use it for storage....Otherwise you will have to have xp installed for you....(more money) . You can not put 600 GB of memory or ram on a pc.....most pc's take up to 4 GB of ram....If you literally mean memory than that will be whatever size hard drive you purchase...Ram is random access memory and helps determine the speed of your pc. And yes it is always worth it to upgrade a pc, depending on how old it is.
