Prior to installing the processor, check that you have BIOS Version 1.0.15, or higher installed, when support for new Intel CPU's was added.

1: Click on Start and then Run.
How do I check BIOS?
2: In the text box in the Run window, type msinfo32 and click OK. This will open the System Information program.
3: When System Information first opens, it defaults to the System Summary, a short list with some of the most important information about your computer system listed.
4: On the right side of the program, locate the BIOS Version/Date entry.
5: This field contains the BIOS version that is currently running on your motherboard. This field may also contain additional information such as the BIOS date, BIOS manufacturer, motherboard manufacturer and the motherboard model number.
Note: If the BIOS date is shown, it can be useful in determining the current BIOS version from a motherboard manufacturer's website if the version is not clear here.
6: Close System Information.
Depends on what the computer is used for but primarily speed, low power requirement and cost to performance ratio.
Also what do I need to look for in a processor?

Just a cautionary note, make sure the CPU you purchase is supplies with a heatsink and cooling fan, these are called a processor in a box (PIB) the other type are called original equipment manufacturer (OEM) these are not supplied with a heatsink and fan, have a shorter warranty period and the warranty is offered by the retailer and not Intel.
