I want to add it to my HP Pavilion p2-1033w for my brother so he can play more games. I just want it to run most games on low. I want to make sure there won´t be any bottleneck. Please tell me if it will work, or not...

The processor is soldered to the motherboard. It cannot be replaced. You best bet would be to get a better motherboard

more of an issue in choosing your hardware rather than the brand (and just so i don't sound like an HP spokesperson; HP sucks balls). if you had bought an FM2 socket HP PC rather than an HP PC with AMD's E-300 series which are all soldered on the motherboard, you MAY have been able to buy that CPU and installed it after a BIOS update.
