First of all new here, thanks in advance for any help. I would like to upgrade my store bought Certified Data computer. I have already started by replacing the power supply and buying a graphics card.
At some point I want to put SSD in and also switch the Phenom iiX2 for an phenom ii X4.
Should I do the processor first? Or the SSD first? The simplest route is best for me even if it takes more time. I am not a gamer, or an overclocker.
A processor will just be a drop in replacement .
Here is the web page for your processor and its cpu support list . http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_...
Since phenom processors are no longer in production they are getting hard to source . Buy one now or you may never be able to update
The SSD is a bit more difficult since you either have to reinstall windows , or use software to migrate your OS programs and data . If you are using Win XP you probably wont get the best use or life from an SSD either . No TRIM support
Acronis have a 30 day trial of their excellent migration software www.acronis.com
Ive spent a little time recovering from broken bones . You have my sympathies . Get well soon ......and be more careful next time
