It really depends on if the motherboard supports it, you will need to check the CPU support list for your board, thats a rather large upgrade though so its unlikely that your board supports it without a BIOS update if at all.

It doesnt support all of them, only up to 95W so the 955 and above are all out as are the 125W versions of the 945.

These are the highest CPUs your board will take. Do not get a CPU outside of this list, especially if it is 125/140w. Also, you will likely need a BIOS update.
