Since I am not very good with computers but my old guy is turning 8 this year and starting to leave me, I must look for a replacement. Now, mostly I just fool around on the computer although I do some serious work too occasionally. I do have a bunch of favorite video games and they are compatible with Windows 98 and XP. Would they run on anything that has Windows 7? Id hate to lose those games, I really like them and they were released when well, when the new stuff didnt exist yet. I am torn on whether I should hope my old computer hangs in there or go and get something new before it dies. I know the people on this forum are a lot more helpful than Best Buy and these places. They will immediately know that I dont know too much about computers.
