✔ Best Answer
You can't, because they use different sockets. But even if you could, you wouldn't want to.

The 2GHz Celeron 550 is actually a much faster processor than the 2.8GHz Celeron. The 550 is basically a Core 2 Solo with less cache memory, while the 2.8GHz Celeron is a crappy old Pentium 4 with far less cache.

Yeah like Jack said they are two diff sockets and the Celeron 550 2ghz would greatly outperform an old Celeron 2.8ghz. Remember cpu's of today are diff then cpu's of yesterday that relied mostly on ghz speed to perform well. Todays processors don't need to rely on mostly speed to perform well.
