Using XP with new install?

    AMD Athlon II X3
    MSI 980 mobo
    DDR3 memory

    can't imagine other peripherals would matter, but will have a sata hd,
    dvd burner, pci modem and old pci soundblaster if I can make it work.

    Have both XP and Win 7 disks. Most of my programs are 5+ years old, and
    made for XP. Still partial to XP after using both.

    Will be a replacement for 8 yo desktop.

    Most stressful task will be streaming online video to a HDTV.

    What I've read seems XP drivers are still pretty much included and not
    difficult to install.

    Pointers on above ponderings appreciated.
