SCYTHE NINJA (**** THAT MOFO IS HUGE!!!
well anyways, i have all my crap set up on my hp, the way I like it, and im sick of juggling pc's, so what im hoping is to pull the hdd from the hp, and put it in the new system, and maybe have it update some files and work with the new mobo/cpu.
I think I can do it through a repair install, i dont care about re-validation (i got that already taken care of, lol, i just need it done by friday night, its thursday now, havin a party, and i need it set up, mostly becasue of the optical spdif out so i can hook it up to the surround sound simpler and have it sound better than having to use home made cables.
so can I do it? basically everything is the same, im just upgrading the MOBO, CPU, RAM, and the DVD drive, GPU, and hdd are the same, both are amd's, andboth have 1gb+ of ram. (I run mce2005, so its kinda mandatory for me)
all I really need is a walk-thru, becasue I will probably use this every day for upgrading every other pc in this lazy city. thanks in advance
man that ninja is sharp too, just cut my finger pretty bad
