Heyz, i'm soon to build my first computer, got all the parts lined up and should have them by next week, this is a very tight buget gaming rig, so i've downgraded a few parts till i get some more income in later months, one of these things is the CPU, the thing thats been biting the back of my head is, when/if i decide to change my current cpu for a new one, how hard would it be, would i have to do anything software wise or would it just be a simple matter of removing the old one and sticking the new one in there and thats that?
make sure the new cpu is supported by your mobo before you buy it ,
possible need to reinstall windows or re-activate at least
and ofc new thermal paste on the Heatsink when you mount it
other than that, it'll be a breeze
