    You might want to drop in some cheap SSD, it will still work faster than any HDD and make it much more responsive. Even if it only has SATA2 it will still be several times faster than any HDD.
    Thanks for replying! I guess that's very true. The C: drive is the original Hitachi 80 GB disk that the machine came with, not a speed monster exactly . The thing is, I consider it a bit of a sport to see what I can accomplish with minimal investments. But the SSD option is definitely worth considering. Woud be nice to try one out and see what difference it makes. At the moment, I have a spare 1 TB HDD lying around that I could try out, as a first step. Like I said, it's fun tinkering with old hardware.

    A cheap SSD made a huge difference to my old 2006 backup PC. Of course you can reuse the SSD when you finally decommission the old PC.

    Hi Steve, thanks for replying. I'll definitely keep it in mind.

    A desktop or laptop built for Windows XP will likely have a 32-bit CPU.
    That means it can use no more than 3 GB of RAM. That's awfully tight for Vista, 7, 8, or 10.
    Will it run? Perhaps. But performance will be dismal. Such a box is suitable only as landfill.

    So how exactly is this thread relevant?

    32 bit processor from year 2000 is not likely.

    32-bit processor from year 2000 was basically standard.

    What utter nonsense.

    I have a 2005 Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop running Windows 10 [32 bit] & my applications quite happily.
    - It runs MSOffice 2007.
    - It records TV from a USB TV tuner.
    - It runs audio editing & video editing applications.
    - After a while I upgraded it to 2GB RAM from its original 1.5GB & set up ReadyBoost on an SD card . They both help but it was OK already.
    It is used every single day.

    Many CPUs from that era are 64 bit. My AMD Socket 939 based PC runs Windows 10 surprisingly well once I used a SSD system drive.
