Can I upgrade my PowerSpec B662 to support Windows 11?


I have a PowerSpec B662 and the processors are not compatible with Windows 11. Can I just upgrade the processors? Do I need a new motherboard? I otherwise like the configuration and do not want t buy a new desktop machine. I'm not a gamer, so I don't need anything too fancy. Just something comparable to what's in there now which is Intel i5-7500

    Greetings! Windows 11 doesn't support 7th gen Intel processors which is the generation of the i5-7500.

    You'd have to change out the motherboard and processor to do an upgrade for this PC.

    In all honesty, you'd probably have a much simpler time purchasing a new desktop with Windows 11 already on it with newer parts.
