AMD FX-6350 VISERA CPU with ASUS M5A97 LE MOTHERBOARD
GEFORCE CT610 2GB PCI EXPRESS VIDEO CARD
I assume installation CDs will come with them and provide drivers.
I am hoping someone out there knows whether the drivers will install
and run under XP?
Re: Will these run on XP?
For the GT610, go to the Nvidia site, and look for the driver download link.
That should take you here.
Now, select the hardware details, use the OS menu one to
select WinXP. Click "Start Search". Did it find something ?
Then, you have a WinXP driver.
For the M5A97 LE, the motherboard needs drivers for the
various peripheral chips.
Enter the motherboard model here, and search.
You will be prompted for an OS, when going to the resulting page.
Compare the response, for the various OS options, to get a feeling
for whether the driver files are "complete" or "partial".
This is a screen capture of what I see for WinXP. I'll
leave it to you, to review the list and see if every
peripheral interface has a driver or not.
It's looking good so far.
But you're the final judge.
Download the motherboard PDF manual first, look in the section that
lists all the peripheral interfaces, and use the PDF manual
as a means to judge whether the driver list is thorough
The USB drivers, normally USB2 comes from Microsoft. Microsoft
controls USB2 distribution. For USB3, it's a relatively recent
introduction. You would not expect Microsoft to add native
USB3 support to an old OS - in which case if your motherboard
has blue USB3 connectors, you'd want a WinXP driver to be available
