depends entirely on whta motherboard you got what you got ?....also if it'll take say for example a 2600 then you may need a better powersupply

You'll have to find out the brand / model of the mobo before anything else.

The only way to find out what it is, is to open the case, or use something like Everest Home (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html)

Or chat to an online HP technician (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodinfoCategory?lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=92993)
