Having just been bought a pc with a pretty dire motherboard, I'm considering upgrading it to one that can agpx8, my only worry is that the pc is a hp pc - will there be any problems here is I was to install a new motherboard and just use all the same components? If correctly installed would the cpu, ram, HD etc still work?
I've got a hp t250.uk - it's a p4 2.66ghz, 512ram, 120gb HD. The prob is that I've ot a radeon 9800pro graphics card, but my machine only goes up as far as agpx4 so while the card works, it would be presumably much better with improved agp capablilty - hence the reason for my upgrade.
I only ask all this becasue I was once told that hp/compaq computers were slightly different to normal pc's and since I know little or nothing about pcs, I did not know whether or not this person was telling the truth.
