Will it work? Yes, but it is almost at the near minimum needed to run the operating system so it will likely experience a lot of freezing/issues.

Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 9 months ago

You're welcome! The operating system for Windows 10 will cost around $100 and you can buy a new computer for around $300 and if you wait until Black Friday/Cyber Monday, you could probably find it even cheaper. I would recommend going with buying a new computer instead of trying to upgrade the older tower. Also, you can sell the older tower for around $20-$25 to help with the cost of the new computer.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
