Hi, I'm looking to upgrade my processor, but how do I find out which processor is compatible with my pc/motherboard? When I look at processors it's giving me a socket number as one of the specs. So how do I find out if it's compatible with my system? Any websites available?
you should have a motherboard manual that came with your pc that will tell you all you need to know. or click on start > run,then type dxdiag and click ok. system model will be your motherboard and your processor will be there too. once you have your motherboard info you can find out the max cpu it will take.
Then click on CPU in left-hand column, this will tell you absolutely everything you about your CPU, and a whole lot more, including all your Passwords, Software Keys etc ..... The only thing it won't tell you is the Power of you PSU.
