Going to higher end, no, lower end (You'd have to go long back though) - yes.

No, you won't have to re-install windows.

But the motherboar where you're going to swap out CPUs, do the MoBo support a 2.80ghz?

I'm asking because "if" the system is an hp or dell or compaq, you should check up on that or just give it a shot.
