I have a Sony Vaio Desktop with the infamous "you're screwed" P4SD-VX mobo AMI bios combo. Apparently my only options to gain performance are to either get a 3.2 P4 to put on the board, or get a whole new board. My question is: if I replace the board, I'll
a. need to go out and get my own copy of XP , and
b. lose all of the pre-loaded Vaio programs/etc.?
Is that an accurate assessment of the situation?
