Unfortunately, they have different chipsets and processor speeds.

Do you need to replace the logic board? If so, you first need to find out whether you have an energy-star or non energy-star Macbook. It sounds like a small difference, but the logic boards have different form factors.

Were you just looking for an increase in performance? If so, there are easier and cheaper ways to improve your computer's performance.

You can check this other question for a similar answer:

Swap late 2008 Black MacBook logic board to Mid 2009 logic board?

Basically, it is possible, but if your model is the white one, it would be easier to look for a used Macbook on eBay with a broken screen and just swap your working screen over to the working body.
