has anybody upgraded the CPU on their mac pro?

i want to upgrade my cpu on my mac pro to make it perform better.
i would LOVE to get one of the newer macs they have out but obviously its way to expensive. and i figure it would probably be way cheaper if i just upgrade the processor and it would be the same thing right?

i have a 2.66ghz dual core intel imac.

but i have no idea what type of 'chip' it is other than intel.
for tho's who might have done this could i just 'in theroy' put in any old intel chip in my mac pro that 'fits' or does it need to be "certified" or something to where it has to be mac compadible so it reads right.

what are your guys's thoughts? i have no idea how much of an upgrade but i would like a quad processor because i am getting spikes in logic with my 2 processor intel as is.
