After searching feverishly, this seems to be a good upgrade for me, but now I have a few questions that I couldn't find answers to. 1. Will my stock LE 1620 fan and heatsink work with the new cpu? 2. Do I also have to upgrade my stock video card?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

That's too technical for me. I just need to know if my current setup will work with the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+. Most importantly, will I need to purchase a new fan and heat sink to use the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ cpu.
ok amd athlon 5000+ or 5200+ is a good upgrade from athlon 1620, it will be 2-3 times faster, if you can find them then you are good to go
your onboard gpu geforce6150 nforce430 is sufficient for facebook games and also for some old games like nfs underground, gta vice city, gta sanandreas at low settings.
