I have a 4 year old Gateway that I have increased memory to 512MB RAM, bought a great monitor, added a new modem not long ago. I am running ME and I believe it has become very unstable. I have read that I should not just get XP and install it in the old tower. Is it feasible and practical to buy a new tower with XP installed on a nice new hard drive? Do I have to then lose all my RAM and my modem? Is it possible that a computer repair shop could get a case with the XP and all the other stuff and then reuse my modem at least if not the RAM? I know that computers are very low priced now, but I don't really need the monitor, printer, keyboard and mouse, etc. I hope I get someone who will be kind and answer this question. It ought to be interesting! Thanks!
