I would avoid removing the CPU from a working system unless I was darn certain 
I had a meaningful upgrade that was known to work, and honestly, a 10% 
increase in clock speed isn't worth the risk of wedging the original system 
(IMHO, of course, YMMV).

Why not stuff all the goodies (RAM, disk, etc.) into the spare and make it 
your "good" one?
