Am considering buying a new system and want a fast processor such as Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66GHz for instance. However, I don't want Vista, but want to stay with XP ( Home or Professional ).Will Either of these XP versions be OK with the new modern processors ?

It never even crossed my mind that there would be a problem with this. I just automatically assumed it would work fine.

I would be interested in knowing if there is any issues.

Well a C2D works fine with XP Pro using both cores on occasions when the software is written for it or sharing the load if more than one process is running.

Judging by the systems on offer here with XP as an option I don't think it's a problem click here
