Voltage requirement must be the same, but otherwise "Yes". Depending on your motherboard and BIOS, the 10600 may well run at only 8500 speed.

Are you planning on just replacing them, or are you replacing 2GB with 4GB or something like that?

Just wondering, because it is unlikely that upgrading 8500 to 10600 straight across isn't going to be much of an upgrade.
