I'm sure this question has been asked before but I really need a clear answer here. On Live updater 5 it says my current bios version is 2.5 and the online version is 2.7.
I'm about to upgrade my processor from a Pentium G860 to an i5 3570k. Should I update my bios before installing the new cpu or will it work without the bios update?
Consoles need an entire hardware overhaul every few years.
As PC gamers, we have the luxury of making simpler, easier upgrades whenever we see fit.
I don't have anything specific chosen at the moment, but I'll definitely be installing a newer Intel processor on either the 1151 or 1150 socket with either an ASUS or MSI motherboard - my current system specifications can be found in my signature. If it was an OEM install of Windows then there is no way you would be able to use it on another motherboard at all.
If speed is the sole reason for the upgrade, rethink where you’re spending your money.At the moment, I don't really have the time to go through reinstalling Windows and getting everything back to normal with work and such, so I was just looking for some tips from others to avoid any complications this might bring forth.I'm assuming uninstalling motherboard and chipset drivers beforehand is a given, but is there anything else I should do before installing the new hardware?Upgrading your PC can help turn a 12-frame-per-second chug-fest into a sublime 60 fps gaming masterpiece.
But reaching that point isn't always as simple as plopping in a new graphics card, and it can be tough to identify what parts are due for an upgrade.
A new Motherboard and CPU have been bought and are gonna be shipped to me soon.
