I have a Gateway pc model DX 4870 UB17. The motherboard is made by Acer and I was hoping I could swap out my 2-core i3 3.3GHz Intel for an Intel 4 core i5 3.2GHz. Would it work? Would it be stable? I hope it works because I already ordered it. Thanks for your help.

Yes, I believe that was it. Intel core i5 3470 3.2 GHz. Socket 1155. Had some great ratings.

Well hope it works, mind you some computer manufacturors really crimp down on hardware sometimes even crippling the CPU even if it is the same socket.

Some even sodder the CPU to the socket to enforce buying brand new machines, or mod the bios in some way.

This computer is socket LGA so i can guarantee it isn't soldered.
