So my computer is about 6 years old and due for upgrade. Theres a few questions I have about replacing the processor and motherboard.
Current Setup: Dell dimension, PIII 800mhz
1. Will any motherboard fit in any case?
2. Will changing the processor require a reboot (or restore) of the entire system? Or is it like a plug and play device where i will just have to install the new drivers and will run as usual?
3. Are all processors compatible (running windows XP pro)? Im upgrading to the Celeron D 2.3
Ive installed new hard dives, cd drives, video cards, ect...but never a motherboard or processor so im a little unsure about how to do it (but i think i have a pretty good idea). Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
