Are iMac 17" CoreDuo and Core2Duo Logic Boards interchangeable

Hello. Can I upgrade a 1.83 Core Duo 17" iMac (Early '06) by swapping the logic board for a Core2Duo board from a late '06 model?

Thanks in advance.

You probably can without a problem but it's easier to just just change the processor. You can use a Core 2 Duo or do like I have and insert a 2.16 GHz processor. See the picture I uploaded on this question for the difference in the benchmarks on this upgrade (click on the image to blow it up): Core Duo CPU upgrade to Core 2 Duo CPU?
