    I would recommend having the SSD as a separate drive, if you have the space in your case; just makes it easier to deal with!

    Welcome to the forums. :)

    It is much harder to change a CPU in a laptop, but it is possible. You will need to take everything apart and then put it back again in the correct order. The smaller...

    I think that the 570 will outperform the 6870 in most games, but it depends on the price difference; I think the 570 is about $60-$80 more iirc. If your budget can stretch to accommodate it, then go...

    Does your monitor have an HDMI input? I guess you could leave the new PC connected via HDMI all the time, then just change the monitor input to be VGA when you need to use one of the other PCs.

    It could be that you need to install the USB 3 drivers that are available on that same page.

    This is the expected behaviour on first boot, as there is no Operating System to boot from. You will need to set your BIOS to boot from the CD/DVD drive first, and install your OS.

    Hi kitube,

    Bear in mind that Windows XP is nearly 10 years old now, so it really is out of date. Saying that it runs faster on modern hardware would be the same argument as running Windows 98 up...
