Is it possible to install Windows 7 on this machine?
My dad found a Optiplex GX280 lying around somewhere.
He brought it back home and I was pretty impressed by it's specs. Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (Build 2600)
Memory (RAM) 503 MB
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
Am not so sure about a graphics card,
I opened it up and it seemed like something was missing.
It doesn't really matter now.
I will use this computer as a secondary in my home,
Am going to set it for my dad,
So he won't use mines anymore.
Am having second thoughts about installing Windows 7 on this machine because of it's low RAM and it's older chipset.
If I do install Windows 7 on this machine,
Am going to remove all the eye candy from it so it won't rely as much on it's graphics.
I also posted this almost exact post here: Dell Optiplex GX 280
(Since the author of that post also talked about the same machine)
The reason I want to install Windows 7 on this computer is because of HomeGroup
I have a lot of files on my main computer that I might need in the future.
So in a long shot, I just want to sync up both computer in my network.
Should I go for it?
