Questions About Processor Upgrades

by on September 27, 2007

Q: Is it possible to upgrade from an Intel Celeron to an Intel Core 2 Duo processor?

A: In order to determine what kind of processor upgrade your motherboard can accommodate, you will need to refer to the documentation that came with it or contact your motherboard manufacturer’s support department. It is unlikely, however, that your current motherboard will be able to accommodate a current dual core processor. If you would like to upgrade to a specific processor, you should research motherboards that accommodate it and buy a compatible one.
