I'm wondering if it's possible to install a new processor in My Computer ? I fly in The Microsoft Flight Simulator and it's bogging down on me. I've been told some of the newer computer are made where you can't put in new graphic cards and processors. My HP Desktop is about two years old.

All processors are replaceable, so yes you can. However, I don't think it is your processor that is bogging the game down. 2 things that matter in games are graphics cards and RAM. How much RAM do you have?

And as for the graphics card, as long as you have a PCI Express x16 slot available on the motherboard then you can put in any graphics card you want.

It's true some pc's are short on slots so that is why you'll have to check.

When he says bugging down, i think crashing.
That's usually software problems. Doesn't have to be spyware. But just bad programming and/or lag of updating the game.
however i don't see any dedicated graphic card's in his system. I wonder how he is even able to play it with that low end GPU. (the Intel HD3000)..... That might be the problem
