I have an older computer but would like to upgrade it a bit. Can I just upgrade the CPU and heatsink WITHOUT losing any of my data and setting on the computer? What I have in my old computer is:
Intel Corporation DQ965GF AAD41676-400
Serial Number: BQGF70600HXE
Bus Clock: 266 megahertz
2.13 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
My research has shown me that I could move to a: Intel Xeon X3230 Quad Core
I would like a little more speed without having to replace my motherboard and CPU -- which I believe that I will surely lost my system setting and data??? Any help would be appreciated.
