    Upgrading Processor, Motherboard, and Ram

    Everything but the motherboard can be upgraded; new motherboard will make the pc

    not genuine.

    Installing from iso dvd or thumb drive would work but the same issue.

    You have the same license terms as when win7 was installed and it carried over to win10;

    OEM (hp,dell, toshiba etc.) or retail ( you bought win7).

    If you can not upgrade on the current motherboard, cpu, ram, video card for less than a new complete system including the os ?

    This also depends on the current configuration, how old are, is the pc.

    Not pushing amd but new 4 core cpu's are $129 retail., system boards range from $100

    and up, ddr4 ram 130 fo 16 gig just as an example.

    Upgrading motherboard, RAM, and CPU after installing Windows 10. Problems?

    Hi all,

    I built this computer years ago. Most of the components are getting outdated. I'm planning to upgrade my motherboard, RAM, and CPU in order to play current games and get more reliable performance because I'm starting to get errors on my RAM.

    My current system setup:

    Windows 10 (recently upgraded from Genuine Windows 7)

    AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.40 GHz

    8GB DDR2 800 MHz

    My question is: how will it work with windows 10 after upgrading? I have been told that upgrading motherboard could break windows since it is tied to the motherboard. I am on a very tight budget. (Graduate school...)

    I just talked to Microsoft Answer Tech. I was told to use the windows 7 disc that I have to reinstall windows 7, then upgrade to windows 10. Is it true?

    Thank you for your assistance!

    Best regards,

    Clancy

    Storage Spaces - How to upgrade motherboard/CPU/RAM

    I want to upgrade my 6 year old Motherboard/CPU/RAM/etc but I have 32TB (4 separate 8TB mechanical drives) setup in full backup in a Storage Space using Windows 10. How do make sure I don't lose all my data when I upgrade the Motherboard/CPU/etc? These
    are precious family videos, pictures etc. Can I just unplug the 4 different 8TB mechanical drives, then do the upgrade of the Motherboard/CPU/etc, then plug the 4 different 8TB mechanical drives back in? Is Windows 10 setup to recognize the pre-existing
    storage space? PLEASE HELP! My system is getting so slow b/c of the old components!!!!!

    Thank you!
