I recently bought an i7 3770k processor in hopes of upgrading my current processor FX-8150 to it. Will i be able to do it? HP says that it will only support FX-8150 and up but then again they said i couldnt upgrade my video card but i did and it worked perfectly.

More about : upgrade amd intel

fx 8150 is on am3+ and the i7 3770k is on lga 1155, 1155 cpu on 1155 motherboard and am3+ on am3+ board, amd and intel are not interchangeable, with out motherboard replacement u wont b able to use ur 3770k, and some prebuilt pcs use non atx form factor, so if ur going to get a new motherboard, u might as well get a new case
