Default Cpu

If I was to buy a CPU from America, would it work on my computer?

Yes, providing your mobo supports it, and you get the correct socket type.

It's a 939 socket, I just assumed any woul work. I don't know what model my mobo is. What will happen if it doesnt support it, just not turn on?

If the motherboard does not support it, the processor just won't fit in. If it's a socket 939, any socket 939 proccessor should fit. Maybe if you give me a link to what your looking to buy, I'll have a look and let you know.

Hmm... Ok, should work as long as it's compatible with your motherboard, if it's on ebay then maybe send a question to the seller asking if it will be.

Most of the time, if your mobo doesnt support your processor you just update your BIOS and it will be ok then.
