One from the twilight zone. Having bought a new Desktop which is running the awful Win 10, I have resurrected my old computer with Win XP Pro, and will use it mainly for photos and music. I obviously need to ditch IE, and tried to install other browsers,e.g. Opera, but the CPU doesn't support SSE. Motherboard is ASRock K7VT2, CPU is AMD Athlon XP 2000+. Will it be possible to upgrade the CPU to say the Athlon 2600, or whatever? If so, any advice on what is involved, changes to BIOS etc will be appreciated. Thanks, Brian.
