On a site i check out from time to time got upgrade kits for computers, like upgrading the processors kit which include a motherboard cooler and of course the cpu and maybe something else and a installation guide. Here i found 2 different ones 1 ryzen and 1 intel core upgrade kit. Maybe these works. EDIT: Of course i have to first check and see if my computer can handle this and the extra power, but i will check next time i get a chance.

Yes but atleast this is cheaper from buying a new case and new graphics cards and so on. These two kits cost around 800 dollars and a new computer with the same specs cost around 1500-2000.
