Just curious if anyone has had any expeirence with this. I have a Compaq PC that I got a great deal on for the most part like. The only thing i don't like about it is the upgradeability. I have an AMD 2400+xp processor, but i can never uprgrade it since that is the last AMD with 266 FSB. The memory can only be ddr 2100. Right now I am happy with it, but besides an DVD burner i can't really add anything to it. My question is if I baught a new mother board, and put it in the compaq case, and kept all the hardware I currently have would it accept the windows xp recovery disk i have from compaq? The board I want is the ASUS a7n8x. The board that is currently in the system is Biostar m7viq km266-8235.
