Optiplex GX280 - Windows XP

The GX280 is Vista Capable and with a CPU that supports NX can go all the way to windows 8.1/10

Onboard INTEL video isnt supported with 10. Legacy Radeon HD5450 2 gig is a recommended update.  Better would be GDDR5  GT1030 card.  Newer UEFI based Turing and Ampere cards do not work.

Most older stock ATI cards are legacy now so you will need older ATI drivers for those.

Max Ram is 4 gigs total.
