So my current CPU the mobo fried. Of course now the processor is F
Ked. So what I need now. Is a new mobo, new processor, and i've decided that my tower is just too bulky and big it's a Raidmax Samurai it's just a goliath. So i've decided to take it down a notch and get a mid-tower.
So today, off craigslist.com
i've found a case-midtower and AMD Athlon64 x2 black edition. So I'm going to pick it up.
Down to the point of this thread:
I'm going from an Intel® Board and Intel Processor to a newer board i've yet to buy off craigslist, and an AMD Athlon64 x2.
My question COMPATABILITY CONCERNS
Will someone give me advice or a step by step on how to go about doing this swap and getting my computer back up and running. Some mobos don't run AMD chips, correct? and the one's that do, will I have to do a full backup of my HDD and reinstall the OS onto the new chip?
Or is it as easy as connecting it, turning my computer on, and everything will be the way it was just running on a new board and chip? Main question: Will someone give me a step by step of how to change out my intel ® board and chip, and putting in a new ATX Board with AMD chip, running the computer and getting it to go to the desktop like normal?
