I’ve recently acquired a computer from my sister (she got a new one), and she knows I like tech stuff, so she sent it over. I took a look at the specs and, frankly, it’s got hardware I’d like to swap with my current computer. For various reasons, I can’t replace the actual computer, and I’d like to switch the components so the new computer (plus the old components) is still functional. So, without further ado, here are the components I’d like to swap out:
- Graphics card: I want to switch an NVIDIA Geforce MX 440 (currently on the old computer, “old”) with a Radeon X 300 SE graphics card. There’s a secondary graphics card that’s the same, too; can that be switched to the old computer? (Note that I don’t have any CDs/DVDs that came with either card…)
- CPU: I need to swap an Intel Pentium 4 2-core 3 GHz processor on the new computer with a single Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHz processor. (Note that I don’t have any CDs/DVDs that came with either processor…)
So, the question is: How can I do this? Can I do this? Can I do this without losing the data on either computer? If you can give me a guide or just a link to a good tutorial, I’d be very thankful. :o
Any help is greatly appreciated!
