Question about Intel 865 S478 8X 10/100 Lan Motherboard
Hi, this is ddy sharman, I want to upgrade my 'intel-P3-600-cpu & 810-mobo' desktop system. Is there anyone who could suggest me :- 1) Latest cpu and mobo which supports both 'Windows-98' and 'Windows-XP-pro'. 2) The motherboard should also support atleast one IDE Hard Disk Drive. 3) The RAM specification in excess of 1GB. Budget is not an issue though, i am planning to go for a 'core 2 duo', but scared of the idea whether it will support both the OS or not, and which motherboard that conforms the above.
It would be difficult to advise you as to which board to go for, as there are many different things to take into consideration, i would look at www.ebuyer.com and choose one then do a google search for any buyers comments. The problem with Win 98 is that newer mobo,s will not have driver support for it, as with Win98 you have to continually revert back to your win98 cd to install certain files which are no longer compatible with new boards. If you wish to dual boot a system; using XP and vista would be more suitable for the type of hardware you will be using.
