new build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm going to building a new rig tonight/tomorrow, using mainly parts i've bought ot e-bay, except for the PSU, case and RAM (all new).
Now, i'm planning on using my current sata hard drive which i'm using at the moment, but the only thing is, i've always used new hdd's before.
So, do i need to partition the stuff i got on there now when i try to get the new build up and running??

Build - AMD 64 X2 3800
Asus M2V mobo
Sapphire X1600Pro PCI-E
Crucial DDR2 (2x1Gb)
My current Maxtor 300gig Sata HDD
XP Pro 500W Psu
My 2013 System

well i was having a read up and ideally your supposed to do a clean windows installation with new motherboard etc,but im just wondering if you can just delete the mb driver files in system hardware properties and keep your original windows?

what i learnt a while ago was to partition my 40gb hard drive into 2 sections,6 gig for windows and the rest for all my programs so if i have to do a format of windows i dont lose all my music and programs.

edit:whoohoo my stuffs arrived..time to see what goes where !!
