Neither of those processors will work as AMD CPU's will not work on an Intel motherboard. You need an Intel socket LGA775 compatible CPU. If you can post what your motherboard specifications are, we could help you pick a CPU that will work in your system. If you don't know what motherboard you have, just post up the make and model number of your computer system.

I meant "perfect" as in the info you posted about your motherboard.

I didn't mean the CPU was "perfect". Sorry for any confusion.

I'm thinking you might be better off saving your money for a new system other than trying to update an older one.

ok well i found some http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N=2010340343 50001157 1051707842&name=LGA 775 any of those wolfdale ones would work for me but prolly the 5300 or 5200 think those will be an upgrade they got hyper threading right?
