adrian2055 Posted September 11, 2009 Share Posted September 11, 2009 Hey Guys,I interested in putting a dual core processor in my new desktop and I thought I would get your opinion on something. 1. Should I do this myself or hire a pro? I've never installed a processor before. Is it easy to do? The cheapest rate in my local area for a pro to do it is $85. That includes same day service (they said they can do it in 2-3 hours) and they overclock it if the motherboard allows it at no extra cost. Is that worth it or is that too high?2. What processor should I get for my system? My PC Specs Are Below.
