My video card crashed, which is ok, since I was planning on upgrading soon anyway. However, the motherboard was old enough that it's not compatible with newer ram formats. As a result, I'm planning on getting a new motherboard, ram, graphics card, and processor. What I need to know is if I can mate the processor to the motherboard without any special tools or facilities. I'm assuming that it's more complex than something like ram installation, but that's what I'm trying to figure out. Thanks

Hi stateschoolbrett and welcome to BleepingComputer.

I'm guessing that when you purchase your new parts that you are adding a new CPU, the good news is that the newer CPU socket are ZIF types, that's zero insertion force. There is a lever which you lift, carefully insert the CPU into the socket and lower the lever to lock it into place, it's that easy.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
