Default trying to upgrade proc.

I have an hp a6109n desktop with an asus M2N68-LA motherboard (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...oduct=3397528#)
I am trying to find out of I can install an Intel Q9400 processor (http://processorfinder.intel.com/det...px?sSpec=SLB6B)

I came across one that I can get for 85 bucks. Not bad for a quad core but im hoping I dont have to switch motherboards.....

AMD Processors can only be used on AMD motherboards.

That Processor(Intel) will NOT work with your motherboard (AMD)
