While I have upgraded things before, I've never done a CPU so I want to make sure it would be compatible with my motherboard. From my understanding it is, because I think I have a LGA 775 socket.
Also, would I be able to install this myself? or would I need the help of a computer techie (is there any special soldering that needs to be done, etc.) How do the power requirements differ? Is it worth upgrading or should I just purchase a new computer? Any advice would be appreciated
