I see what you mean.  I have a corsair 800d case, so it's huge.  So yeah having another desktop takes up some room.  I got lucky because I have a nice large desk, so I made it work.  Plus I like being able to hook it up to my monitors rather than a laptop screen.  None the less, if you can find an old gaming laptop with a pentium 4 or core 2 chip, you should be good to go.

when I first started modding, I had an HP Pavillion zd8000 with a pentium 4 in it, and it ran smoothly.  It was pretty high end at the time but that sucker ran hot.  My friends had more basic models and the game ran, but there were times that it was choppy.

Really wanted to update this one.  I think the nose looks more accurate now.  download is updated so you can get the new version now.

An xp machine might be a wise investment. Windows 8 really doesn't cut it.

 

That Cano is spectacular by the way!

Finally got around to putting together my "new" Windows XP PC that I mentioned in my post above from April.  After installing my "new" hardware over New Year's, I reformatted the hard drive yesterday and reinstalled Windows XP on it.

Tonight I installed MVP2005 along with TC1956 and TC1976. I had forgotten how nice the game plays on a clean system!  Everything is very smooth; even using hi-res uniforms in the detailed, hi-res stadiums in the TC mods. 

This PC will just be used to play MVP2005, so it shouldn't get bogged down with extra applications and junk files.

I know, right?  It's insane how smooth a clean xp is. Have you tried installing it on an SSD?  I never imagined XP running so smoothly until I did that.

I ended up getting a  KVM switch so I can switch between machines really easy.

Right now, I'm still using a regular hard drive.  Maybe at some point in the future I will look into an SSD, but for now, I'm really happy with the current system.
