      I have i5 processor from 2009. I recently installed Samsung SSD, upgraded graphics and downloaded W10. Do I need to upgrade my processor.

          Hello Wiggy,

           

          I would recommend that you check with the manufacturer of your system if it is compatible with Windows* 10. In regards to your CPU, please check the following web site: http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-035705.htm Based on the Microsoft website, all 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster Intel® Processors will support Microsoft Windows® 10.

           

          However, the processor alone does not determine Window 10 compatibility. There are other considerations like the system BIOS, network cards, graphics, and other system components that come into play. For systems running Windows 7* or Windows 8.x*, there is an application available from Microsoft that will tell you if your system is compatible.

          Get Windows 10 is an application designed by Microsoft that will check to tell you if your system, including the Intel® Processor, is compatible with Windows 10. Access this Microsoft Windows 10 Q&A to find this information and other pertinent information on Windows 10.


          I hope this helps,

            Thanks for the reply, you are of course correct. I've checked out the System BIOS and I'm going to update the mobo first. I'm looking at ASRock Mod 1150 Z97 Extreme6 ATX Motherboard to replace my aged RSRock mobo. Mike
