    I got a downloaded version of Windows XP on a disk and I'm thinking should i install it? Or can I even install? My specs are again..

    Intel Pentium 2 400mhz
    192mb sdram
    6gb hard drive

    I currently have Windows 2000, I can't really tell you if it's fast or not but i think it's slow..... so will xp be really slow?
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    Minmum System Requirments.

    PC with 300 megahertz (MHz) or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233-MHz minimum required;* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
    128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
    1.5 gigabyte (GB) of available hard disk space.*
    Super VGA (800 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor


    I'd stick with 2000 if I was you.

    2000 is a fine operating system. I don't see why an upgrade is necessary. I say stick with 2000 for now. Your computer can probably handle it but there is no dire need to switch. If you have a need to reformat your computer then maybe try switching, but don't go out of your way to do so.
