You can check their capabilities here:

"Is it good idea to upgrade processor for this board?"

No, it is a bad idea, especially considering the age of the board.

Seriously? You cannot put enough memory on this board to make it worthwhile to upgrade for this feature. This is just throwing good money for bad. Recycle this board and get something far newer.
