do you think its safe yet to install xp3,i've read so many horror stories i'm reluctant to install until all the bugs have been ironed out,at present its sitting there waiting to be installed as a windows update.i just cannot take any more problems on board.

It's a case of "suck it and see" I had sound issues with an AMD based board which I resolved myself. Most Intel PC's are ok with it, and I have successfully installed it on my AMD laptop.

I'm waiting until I do a fresh install of XP in August - until then, I make do with what I've got!!

I think it would be better to leave it until Microsoft releases it as an automatic update, which shouldn`t be too long, now.

Even then it`s not guaranteed to be problem-free but it should be ok for most users if not all.

No problems here, (Intel Chipset) and never had any from first installation.
