    i dont think that cpu will work in your old system you would have to buy a new motherboard and ram as i think that you have a soket 939 board if it is just a plain old 1.86Ghz athlon cpu.

    The mobo you have is 3 older than the new cpu you chose. So yeah what klepto said. You could choose a new mobo/ram etc, but you'd probably needs a new psu as well.
