CPU & GPU Swap

Hey guys need some help. I have ordered my new FX 6300 along with my Radeon 7950 and will be replacing my old ones. Which should I swap out first CPU or GPU. Would it be ok to put both in at the same time? I know I need to update my BIOS before but is there any tips to make this switch easier? Any help is greatly appreciated.

  1. update your bios.

    shut down

    Remove GPU/HSF/CPU

    Place new CPU

    Place HSF

    Place New GPU


    that's the way i would do it.
  2. Replacing one by one isn't a bad thing to do as well.
  3. You can replace whichever one you want first. But it's easier to replace the cpu & heatsink first then put in the new gpu.
