your motherboard is good and it's as easy as taking the old one out and putting the new one in.

what is your use case? for gaming, i'd recommend a 3600 instead of the 2700

yeah im gaming. im getting the ryzen 7 2700x because its cheaper and it has a bigger heatsink with rgb and i dont have enough money for after market cooling
