If it works ill sell my "old" motherboard with the dual core proccesor. Im hoping it does.
But if i buy the motherboard and just change proccesors it would be the same effect as selling my old motherboard.
I would be selling the same product...an identical motherboard with a dual core proccesor....

Hmm well i might look into that. Im not sure if theres a walk-thru somewhere. I might be able to do it as long as it doesent require extreme precision. I Might add i do have more shakier hands than the average bear.
