Evening,

I’d like to put together a mini-ITX gaming PC that will run XP. Specifically for GTA San Andreas.

I’d prefer to run it on XP than struggle with the compatibility modes on 7/10.

Ideally I’d want the system to be upgraded to Windows 7/10 in the future and be powerful enough to run the more basic games etc.

Thank you!

Your going to need some old hardware that supports XP.

I’ve been trying to find a mini-ITX that has the drivers and will run it, every time I get somewhere the mobo’s are unavailable.

I don’t know much about older AMD/Intel systems unfortunately 😕

First thing, why not get window 7 and run a windows xp virtual machine? If you don't want to do that/ save some money: get window XP off eBay.

GameMax is not unknown, they are Bronze rated and have good reviews on Amazon. If price is not too much of an issue, these could easily be changed to something higher rated/more expensive/well known

I don't recommend any of them, unknown PSUs.
