I have a desk top with a Biostar G41D3+ motherboard, lga775 socket with an E5450 cpu, is a DDR3 8GB RAM, that works great, but I am thinking about changing the board for a Gigabyte GA-EP43T-USB3, DDR3. I do also have an SSD & HDD installed.

As I am not a computer whizz but enjoy tinkering, I was wondering if I will encounter a problem with the different chipset number or with my Windows 10, which was provided by my local PC shop a couple of years back, think it was their business install, but my PC says it's OK and updates OK.

Thanks for your thought's, advice, though I am not interested in buying new updated stuff, my PC is not used for gaming etc...

As usual, first consult CPU compatibility list

Don't think it will list mine as my Xeon E5450 is a lga 771 socket converted to fit a 775, but it did replace a Q9400 in the G41D3+ board with no issues.
