Installing a new processor

If I go buy a Intel Core i7 extreme and replace it with my Intel Dual Core will it be that simple?

You need to stay with a socket 775 CPU if you want to upgrade what you have currently.

Please.
I suggest you start your own thread in lieu of highjacking this one.

WHS, sorry.

Will post a new thread, now.
Thanks for the nudge
