Without knowing anything else about the computer (brand? board name? board model?), we cannot say.
With respect, it's like phoning up a garage, asking for some tyres and replying they're for a car.

The Gigabyte GA-8SIMLH is Socket 478 therefore you will not be able to use a Core 2 Duo in this computer.
Upgrade routes for Socket 478 are realistically not feasible or cost effective, better off replacing the computer realistically.
