  1. I did a boneheaded move and damaged my CPU processor while I was cleaning my desktop. When I pulled the heatsink out, it took my CPU with it and damaged a pin. Since it is damaged, I am looking to replace it with the same or one that is slightly upgraded.

    Question: Since my current CPU is damaged, Can I replace it with one that is better?

    This is what I currently have. Now don't laugh cause its a very old system. I am looking to give it to a friend for him and his family to use since they dont have a computer. I have upgraded the RAM, added a secondary Hard drive, graphics card, sound card and wireless adapter.

    I believe that that MB only supports P4's. I have a box full of them in my shop. If you want, i can check and see if I have a replacement in working order for you. IF..I do, you are welcomed to it.
