    It depends on your P4. It has to support NX, which some P4's do not.

    Use the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant to get info on what you want to know. I think you probably would have no problem running 8 although some non-critical features may be missing. And, you might have a driver (or so) issue to resolve. You can upgrade for U.S. $39.99 until year-end if this option is open to you. Thereafter, it is $199.
