Your motherboard will support these processor models.  Be sure you have the latest bios before you upgrade.

 

If you are after gaming performance then get a bigger video card and a bigger power supply most likely.  ATI and NVIDIA performance specifications.

When you boot up, look for the bios level on the bottom of the HP blue screen.  Verson 5.21 is posted as the latest version for your PC.  Look here.
