    I'm pretty sure you could but you might want to get my answer double checked.

    There's no such thing as a 'Quad Core' Core i3.
    Core i3's are dual core.
    But you can upgrade if you want to.

    Corsair Obsidian 550D

    If you could choose between intel and AMD, then yes. Indeed it does, tho intel is horrible for lower budget builds. I agree tho

    You're upgrading from a mobile processor to a desktop processor? How does that happen?
