Hey,

I'm no professional at building computers - best I've done is install a PCI TV Card, although I recently purchased an expensive desktop and for some stupid reason I didn't even think about intel core duo/ dual processor but it has a high spec without the matching processor I was wondering is a new dual processor easy to install or should I take it to a shop and let them upgrade it?

p.s. Would lose anything on my desktop software & files if I did get my desktop upgraded

It's not that hard. A CPU takes like 5min. to replace.

The big thing is figuring out what CPU is compatible with your motherboard. Please list all of your specs on your system for us and we can help you better. (Video card, motherboard, RAM, and the PSU wattage if you can)

No you shouldn't. But it is always a good idea to back up your important data before you mess with anything in your PC to be safe.
