Ok so ive just recently been getting into all this computer stuff and finally am about to build my first build. and my friend wants to slowly upgrade his computer to be just as good as mine. i told him that in February he can have my motherboard and for Christmas he can have my chassis, cause im gonna upgrade both of those around then. cause i got a microATX H77 and i wanna get a normal ATX H77, and my chassis isnt water cooling ready so im going to give him that and upgrade to a water cooling chassis.(and if you could tell me if you know any good water cooling chassis' that are at most $100 that be great! and the cheaper the better lol)
ANYWAYS so at Christmas time he gonna get the same processor, power supply, and graphics card as me. Which is an I5 3450, XFX 550w, and a Radeon 7950.
Now here's the problem ive been researching all night to find out the motherboard and current specs on his Emachine el1352 and finally have them and i still don't know if he can put in an I5 onto his motherboard. So i thought id come here and ask and hopefully someone will know!
