✔ Best Answer
No, The G41 chipset and related socket is not compatible with any of the four generations of i-series processors, you need to stick with the Core 2 series (E-series Core 2 Duo and Q-series Core 2 Quad) as your latest CPU.
If you are ready to upgrade, you will have to start with a new build, very little if anything will be usable from the old machine (not motherboard, not memory, and for speed, not even hard drive (slower interface); even power supply is unlikely usable depending on what you have and what your needs will be on the new machine).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
