Here's how I would research this.

1. https://www.google.com/search?q=Acer+FX58M+cpu+list
2. The socket appears to be FCLGA1366
3. The i7-975 socket is that so one hurdle down.

4. The 975 TDP is 130 Watts so that's a challenge for many boards. This alone looks to tell me no since most CPUs that shipped on that board look to be under 100W.

5. Because http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx does not work today and other issues such as I can't find out which board you have.

My answer is no. Don't do this.

For now, no. But why?

Because the Foxconn site is down, I can not research this. If this changes, post here and I'll get an email alert and pick the discussion up and try again.

-> BUT ALL THAT ASIDE, the real gains on such a system is to change the HDD to SSD and to max out RAM. The GPU is dated. Performance today is usually all about gaming which the current CPU is more than enough.

Ohh...

I tried today to play Assassins creed Origins and i have only 35-40 fps on very low.
If i change HDD to SSD it will be much more better? Is it increase my fps?
btw. thanks again Grin

FPS? You upgrade the GPU.

While I can share results of FPS increases when I change to SSD it's usually small like 1 to 4 frames per second gains. But the real payoff is boot and load time reduction and overall system response time.

https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Extreme-3-33GHz-LGA1366-Processor/dp/B002A6LOI4 is over 480 bucks and my bet would if it worked give you 1 to 4 FPS increases

http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-RX-560-vs-AMD-RX-460/3926vs3641 shows solid gains in FPS. And you can shop for more GPU to get even more gains. It's not the CPU IMO holding the machine back.
