I have a three year old system that was a custom build. I want to upgrade the CPU, the MOBO, the RAM and the GPU. I wondering though, if I update all this stuff, then just plug in my regular hard drive, will all this new stuff read the Windows install and just boot like usual?
This might be a stupid question but I've been wondering.
im doing the exact same thing at the moment, and when i asked my computer guy directly "would i be able to keep all my sh*t?", he got really cagey about it, kept using that exasperating phrase "maybe, maybe not".
I figure it would just be a case of updating the drivers PRIOR to upgrading all the hardware, though suprisingly im yet to hear from anyone who has actually done this.
