The OS license dies with the motherboard change. This is well discussed so I'm unsure what the goals were here.
You have the SSD, you have an above average 950 video card so do tell why do this?
I just received my i5-3570K processor and P8B75-M LX Plus motherboard in the mail today and needed some advice on how to do this swap. I'm pretty tech savvy but as far as software issues are concerned I'm only mid-tier at best. I was wondering, I'm trying to avoid installing a new OS because I've dished out a lot of money already on my current computer build, money that I don't have. How would I install my new motherboard and CPU safely?
My current computer specs are:
VIVO ATX Mid Tower
Pentium Dual-Core E5700 @ 3.00 GHz/3.00 GHz (Dell Inspiron 560 OEM)
018D1Y Motherboard (Dell Inspiron 560 OEM)
EVGA GeForce GTX 950 Graphics Card
SP Brand 240GB SSD
Hitachi 7200 RPM 1TB HDD
2 Coolermaster Sickleflow 120mm fans
1 Coolermaster 80mm fan
1 120mm case fan
Off-brand 750W PSU
I hope I didn't miss anything here but I need your help so I can finish this rig before school starts. Thank you
