If your temps do rise, consider upgrading the case fans to ones with higher CFM output, the gt can get hot 80C!
The stability of an OS is in direct proportion to the stability of the user. Be careful awus trying to make it too “modern”. I understand I will have to also upgrade PSU as well but I would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. Good luck with the upgrade.

My mobo has 4 slots, ptgx1-la are empty. Just because the socket size is correct doesn’t mean the MOBO can handle it.

And don’t do what I did. Some of the early core 2 duo had a bus speed of Mhz, so may be compatible. I know what you said in Post 4, but this could turn into an expensive hobby and the finished product might not work. I assume this would have something to do with the speed of the processor and causing it run a little hotter.
Corday, Ok thanks again for your comments. The question will be, is it worth it? Originally Posted by twajetmech The was released inso that should be okay.
