|"Yes it will work. I have done some research on your topic"|
How about backing up your claim with some of that "research"?
Which CPU does your friend currently have? His system is fairly outdated due to the chipset the board is based on. The GeForce 6150SE/nForce 430 combo was released 6-7 yrs ago for S939 systems. What does your friend hope to gain by upgrading the CPU? How much RAM does he have? Does he have a decent video card or is he still using the weak onboard 6150SE?
