Can you swap CPUs??

You can just swap the cpu(on most systems). You don't normally need to reactivate windows.

My friend has a dual core Pentium processor and really wants to play battlefield 1.

He wants to swap out the GPU (I know U can do that) however swapping the CPU...

Is it a simple take it out and put a new one in?? and then reactivate windows.

Or will it break everything??


thanks in advance.

You should just be able to swap out the CPU, however more research is needed to find out what socket your motherboard is and other compatibility issues. Good luck!

Sorry if I stop responding, I've probably gotten busy as I mostly am only on here while working.
