So I want to make a major overhaul of my system. This all started with the acquiring of a new processor that I later found out was not in fact compatible with my motherboard. So I have decided to finish what I started and change everything necessary to make this processor work.
I am very flexible on prices though cheaper is better obviously. Also I am not sure if I actually need to change the case or not so that's there as a better safe than sorry.
As I said before: am I missing anything important? Is anything I selected not compatible? I don't want to run into the same problem I just experienced. Do you guys have suggestions that might be better than the ones I selected?
Thank you for any and all assistance you can provide me.
Changing your motherboard will probably require a 'clean' re-install of Windows, and the version that comes with your HP is locked to the supplied motherboard. You would need to purchase a new copy of windows to successfully upgrade your motherboard.
I am fairly flexible on that subject. Technically my maximum is around $800 but I do really don't want to spend quite that much. As I said in the first post, cheaper the better. Why do you have something in mind?
