i want to put this into it:

Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I7860

You need a motherboard with a 1156 socket. That's about it.

What's your current hardware specs?

Your motherboard won't support the i7 CPU.

Your RAM is incompatible with the 1156 socket motherboards.

To upgrade to that CPU, would require a new motherboard, and new RAM as well. If you have an OEM version of windows, you'll need a new copy of windows as well. This would be a pretty expensive overhaul.

There are no BIOS updates for your PC, so there aren't any good options. You could upgrade the CPU, but there's no guarantee that the BIOS will recognize it.
