OK here is my sys

Athlon 750

300 Meg Ram

20 Gig HD

Asus A7V MB

Radion 8500 Vid Card

SB Live Value

Zoltrix TV Genie using s-video I/P from sattellite only

Dscaler

Power DVD 3

Could I get some opinions on,which OP Sys would be best for me. I am not hooked up to the net and the PC is used only for DVD and Satellite (no games). I am currently using Win 98 SE but am considering a change.

Thanks

Steve

I would use Windows 2000 for all-round stability.

I would swap out that motherboard for something else. The Via chipset in the A7V is unreliable and buggy as hell. I recently put my Athlon 800 from an A7V into an ECS K7S5A MB, and have eliminated hardware probs, and strange crashes. For $50 or so, it's a nice upgrade.


But, back on topic, I think XP or 2000 would both work equally well, but if you need to purchase either one, you may as well get XP, since it will be more supported in the future.
