NO way. Different sockets for CPU, different DDR technology for the motherboard.

If you want to upgrade your computer, the cheapest and smartest way to do it would be to use NOTHING from your existing computer (start over from zero).

Your new CPU (good idea) would require a new motherboard, which would require new RAM. You NEED a new power supply, as it's terribly dangerous to recycle a used power supply...especially of retail kit quality.

So you start with most of a new system just to get a slight upgrade. Then you'll want a new video card to go with it. Pretty soon, all that's left are the case and the drives. But the case would look odd, so that's gotta go. You gotta reinstall windows from a freshly formatted hard drive. If you care about your data integrity, you will start with a new hard drive.

And your upgrade project is left with...nothing but the optical drive left. Oh, but it's probably white...and you want black to match the new case.

End result...

Wait a minute! You just built a whole new computer.

Like I said, start over from zero. That's the smart way to do it.

Covered my initial question. Cheers.
