|Whether the upgrade would be worthwhile or not really depends on what you use your system for. As for whether the upgrade will work or not, you didn't supply enough info about your motherboard (what's an ASUS 87?) or the CPUs for anyone to be able to give a definitive answer.|
Go to the ASUS website, find your motherboard, then check the CPU support list. If the CPU is supported, make sure you have the correct BIOS before attempting the swap.
