I'm gonna need a little more information UNLESS I take the time to research the contents of said computers. Everything should be upgradable, the only question is "Is it worth it?"

It's funny that you have 870+ posts even though you ask about swapping CPUs and not the motherboard. Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

That is exactly what I thought. Either the post is a joke or someone is posting under his name. I remember him to get quite involved in many threads, so I'm pretty surprised myself.
