Re: XPS 8700 Motherboard Upgrade

You would have to replace the CPU as well since the sockets are different. Also you would lose your Windows license as the license is tied to the BIOS. It may or may not activate with a new motherboard. The following site has more information. So considering the age of your 8700 ( approaching 6 years) it seems that the cost involved would make upgrading to a new system a better route.
