that wil l depend on the motherboard, and if it can support the new Conroe's. Some boards only support Core Duo... and not Core 2 Duo.

you will want to go thru your system specs and do some research first before buying a CPU blindly, then finding out you have to upgrade a lot more cause the board won't support it. Please provide your specs and we can help with trying to pick out some good parts for what you have.

We need to know the model of your motherboard, to see if it's Core 2 Duo ready.

big improvement is an understatement.
that will be like moving from a cave to the playboy mansion.
