If I'm doing to do this what cpu's would be best to do this? I know the P4 is cheapest way but, would a gulftown cpu work or would I be better suited to stick to P4 or a core 2 cpu? I might consider jumping up to newer IF it could handle old OS ok.
To do a hotswap system with 98 xp and 7 os's what is the newest card I could upgrade to from a ATI 700 pro.
I'm just throwing out ideas before I upgrade.
It looks like you're asking a bunch of somewhat complex questions?
Gulftown is over $1000+
Secondly Gulftown was made for 1366 socket motherboards, not 775.
I think you should make a new thread to ask your Hot swap HDD/OS question so someone that knows a little something about that can get a look at it. I'm not familiar with hot swap OS systems... :\
There are definitely people on this board somewhere that can answer those questions though.
