Foreign Products

  1. Hi. I'm not sure if this is the place where I can ask this question, but I guess I'll ask away anyways. If I buy a CPU from another country, would it work here in North America? For example, I bought a CPU in Hong Kong. When I return to North America from Hong Kong, would it be possible if I put the CPU into my hard drive and have it work perfectly along with the other products that are actually bought here in North America? It seems like a stupid question but whatever lol. I'm so inexperienced with computers >.<''. I'm wondering if anyone has actually done this, and it would be great if anyone who has actually done this could give a comment on this. By the way, it doesn't have to be CPUs; I just used CPUs as an example. It can be other products such as mobos, chipsets, memory rams, video cards, and so on. Thanks in advance.

    Put it this way
    Dell's main operation is in Malaysia

    Actually most computer parts come from Asia somewhere
    All parts are universal, except Power Supplies with the 115V 230V switch (you just need to confirm it's on the right setting before turning it on.

    There are no dumb questions, just dumb answers
