Can a 2009 core 2 duo logic board be replaced with a 2010 i3 board?

テキスト:

Hello, I purchased as a project one iMac late 2009 A1311 Core 2 Duo CPU EMC 2308 that have a toasted logic board, the part number is 820-2494-A

Searching in ebay, found that the C2D boards are very expensive, a i3 logic board for a mid 2010 A1311 part number 820-2784-A is pretty similar in shape, screw location and connectors, the angle of the power cable connector is different, everything else looks the same.

Anyone had tried a logic board swap? I know that have to buy a new CPU and probably a GPU, but the cost is about the same buying only the C2D logic board or the i3 logic board + i3-550 cpu.

The GPU is other issue, because I don't know how the integrated graphics works in the i3-550, but I have a spare HD2600 PRO that I can use if necessary.

Is it possible? or maybe I'm complicating too much and should just sell the iMac as parts?
