Simple Questions on Replacing a Motherboard
Posted on 2006-10-19
I'm looking into upgrading (replacing) my old motherboard so I can get a better CPU.
1. In replacing the Motherboard & CPU, will I have to re-install my OS on my Hard drive ?
2. I currently have a 300W Power supply. If I upgrade the Motherboard and CPU should I upgrade that as well ?
3. Will an AGP 4x Video Card work in an AGP8X slot ?
4. Are there any advantages over using a PCI network Card vs. Using the Onboard RJ-45 connection on the motherboard ?
Not sure if this is posted in the right area, if not let me know and I'll post it in the right spot.
Thanks for you help!
