This is Part 2 of the Ultimate XP rig video. In this part I give a tour of the hardware and I install Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

I hope you enjoyed this video and let me know what you thought of it, thanks.


  1. i have the same case but i can't find the name of this case but i upgrade it to i heavy 2008 gaming pc with 8gb of ram and sshd and hdd and a beast of gpu I spent 100 dollar for all and i can play fallout 4 and battlefield 1

  2. Back in 2005 I built my first pc

    CPU: amd septhothorn k7
    Mobo: asrock k7 ddr Edison
    GPu: ati radion 9870
    Ram: crucial 1g dual channel
    Case: original lanboy in black
    Power supply: 430w corsair black
    Storage: three 80 gb hdd in raid 0
    And some Samsung cd drives and floppy drives

  3. back in 2005 i had this HP Compaq machine with a Socket 939 Amd motherboard, 512mb ddr ram and some radeon x1800 or w/e shit integrated crap. also has a Amd Athlon 3000+ single core 1.8ghz, yick. But the mobo it had was a treat, had it not been the typical garbage included in HP computers back then and other off the store shelf crap. It was capable of running up to Amd athlon 64 x2 4800+ Dual core chips, up to 4gb of ddr ram AND it had a pci express x16, oh the upgrade possibilities. but back then i was just a kid with no money, couldnt even afford to pay monthly for world of warcraft. The motherboard also lasted 2 years, rofl. good lord. Anyways i've decided that i want to rebuild and relive some glory past times, i want to Rebuild her for the purposes of Older gaming as with Windows XP older shit just works better then the modern ports of it, I dont want them black bar crap and what not, no no…I like what you have done hear sir it has given me the idea for mine as well, what i am going to do is put back this setup back togher. AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ 2.4ghz Dual core, 4G DDR Ram (maybe less to begin with depending on what i find for the $, a dvd rom drive and probly a wi-fi adapter. Graphics card however i'm undecided, probly looking around Geofrce 6600-6800 series. video cards might be tough, I might not succeed in getting a functioning proper 05-06 Model GPU in their. I intend for this to also be capable of playing Nostalrius vanilla WoW again, as i wanted to so badly play retail back then on it, Also plan to use it for many other older games.

  4. I also have a spare Dell precision m6400 that Dell does provide drivers for xp that Im thinking of installing xp it has a C2D at 2.66ghz with 4gbs of ddr3 ram at 1066mhz. For some reason, most Core2 series pcs only had ddr2 ram at 667 or 800mhz, but my dell core2 laptop however uses ddr3 ram at 1066mhz. I guess a C2D at 2.66ghz would probably even beat a P4 running at 5.2ghz.
