Hi, I have a Dell XPS 8300 desktop pc with an i5-2310 processor and an Intel H67 motherboard and want to either
replace just the processor with an i5-3550 and keep the motherboard
replace the motherboard for an Asus P8Z77-V along with replacing the processor. Will the existing motherboard accept the new processor?
If I replace just the processor does the operating system need re-installing,
if I replace both the motherboard and processor does the operating system need re-installing?
