Angus,

XP being no longer supported doesn't mean it will not work in the future. The only thing it means is that Windows will not have tech support for XP related issues.

but what if i wanted to upgrade windows , could i upgrade my cpu to help my computer to run faster with newer windows.

By the time that you upgraded all the parts on that computer, it would be a lot cheaper to just buy a brand new desktop that is designed to run Windows 8.
