Default Any PC Tech gurus on here? Need some info..

Hey guys, I been out of the PC building scene for a few years, and haven't really been looking at the new stuff (component wise) for about 4-5 years now. So need a little info if anyone has a moment!
I stopped using my desktop PC 3-4 years ago...it ran XP. Been thinking about running a more current OS like Windows 10. However not sure how well it will run this OS.
Here's what I remember off the back of my hand....

Motherboard is Intel D975xbx2
Dual core processor
6gb Ram (?) not really sure of the amt.
Sata drives
NVidia GeForce video cards
Mid tower case

My question is, will this run Windows 10? Or should I change the motherboard and processor? Also I will prefer to use a SSD hard drive, but not sure if it will support it.

Well the official minimum requirements are these:


If you don't wanna follow the link that's roughly: 1ghz processor, 1GB ram, 16Gb Hard disk space to install(20GB for 64 bit version) and a DirectX 9 compatible graphics card. Seems pretty low spec to me, so I think you'll be fine.

Supporting the SSD is a question of motherboard spec/compatibility - Win 10 can handle them, but your motherboard may not, check with the manufacturer's website to find out.

You will need the 64bit version of win 10 to take advantage of RAM greater than 4GB, but if it has problems installing you may have to run 32 bit instead.
