Assuming its retail it will work. I recently changed out my motherboard, graphics and Hard drive, etc. I called instead, and made it so i could talk to a real person. The person I spoke to had an accent from India was but very good at his job. Very nice and wasn't like a robot. Knew his English very well and well everything worked out without having to struggle to explain to him.. Other peoples horror stories made me scared but now that i passed that phase, I was actually happy.
