    What do you think of the card i posted above? it even has the new processor...i dont mind buying new ram

    EDIT: I forgot to mention I'm looking for an AM2 socket.

    EDIT #2: How does it work when i get a new motherboard...is windows xp (or vista) already included or do i have to buy it? I don't want to have to buy windows...

    Windows XP and Vista are both Windows Operating Systems, and yes you will have to buy either one when you buy a new motherboard. Your video card will fit the new motherboard but you will need to get DDR2 memory. Your old memory is just DDR

    Isn't my OS installed on my hard drive? If it is can't i just switch hard drives?

    In case it isn't can't i just move the system files over to an external hard drive and use it as my os holder?
