Transferring the mobo to another case is doable if you can get the motherboard bolt pattern to match up with the case. It may not be worth the hassle. You would also need a power supply and perhaps some other devices such as a memory card reader.

"Do all those other processors work on my machine?" I am not sure what your source on information is for the other processors.
However, I wouldn't try any processors rated over 65 watts for the AMD AM2+ socket.

Answered on my last post. In theory, these models should work but there are others.
Be sure to update the bios before installing a new processor and make sure that your PC boots up normally with the old processor.
After the installation of the new processor, again clear the CMOS before powering up.
