I currently have an Intel Pentium 4 3.00GHz processor and I was just wondering if I could change it to a Intel Pentium Processor E6500 2.93GHz without having to reformat or cause problems. I don't want to have to install Windows 7 and all my programs again! And if I can, will I need thermal paste or whatever its called?

My Computer Information:
Motherboard - Intel Desktop D101GGC
Processor - Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM - 2GB (Hynix)
Graphic Card - ATI HD4670 (Amazetech)

Doesn't look like it supports Core2 CPUs.

Looks like I'll have to find an Intel Pentium D processor but they're so old and expensive! :|
