I recently just upgraded from xp to win 7 as some software, such as dropbox or maybe it was Box, stopped working as it was XP and they wouldn't allow files to sync to the computer until it was updated. The power supply was also going out, so was a good time to upgrade. I agree with you though, it doesn't take much of a machine to control the cnc, it was only a pentium 4 with 1 gb of ram and that was overkill. The new PC is way overkill, but nice to be able to do a quick google or work on a cam program without having to go back to the shop computer if I'm not in the middle of a job on it.
