Hello everyone!

I'm writing first post and I have question.
Can I upgrade CPU from 1st gen Intel Core i3 3.07 GHz to 2nd gen Intel Core i5 or i7 3.30 or other GHz's???
My friend said : "After upgrading CPU, your PC WILL BURN!!!"
I don't think that's right. Is there answers? I'm going to upgrade cpu , because FSX (Microsoft Flight Simulator X 2006) DEPENDS ON CPU NOT GPU FOR BEST FPS!!!

My specs in Lenovo H320

Windows 7 Home Basic 32-bit
RAM 4GB (Upgraded from 2GB to 4GB last year)
1st gen Intel Core i3 3.07 GHz Socket LGA 1156
NVIDIA GeForce GT520 2GB LOW PROFILE (Upgraded from ATI Radeon HD 5450 512MB to NVIDIA GeForce GT520 2GB)
320GB HDD WD

No. The 1156 socket on your current board won't work with socket 1155 cpus. And if you change the motherboard, you'll need a new windows coa; the original is for lenova systems only. Only option might be a 750 1156 cpu, but then you'll need a separate video card. The 750 doesn't have an onboard video option.

OK!
What about to upgrade CPU COOLER
or change something in files to have GPU and CPU usage in one time
or tweak game?

Which Intel Core with 750? How many GHz's???

Many thanks!

750 is four cores with no onboard graphics on the cpu itself. You'd need a low profile video card bracket for your slimline lenova case. Remember, it's not guaranteed this cpu will work; Lenova provides no cpu upgrade information for your motherboard. You'll have to google for this cpu specs; my links are broken.
