Well, buying a new machine is not upgrading a machine, is it?

So, can the CPU of a single core be replaced with a dual core CPU?

you asking us if you can put intel processors for a current computer in an old IBM logic board. No. Its not possible.
If it was possible, it wouldnt work well. You would be stuck the sloer logic board bus, pci slots, and other inferior technologies that would not maximize the new intel processor.
