I currently have this board with a E6600 Core 2 Duo at 2.4ghz and I think it's time to upgrade - can I just replace it with any 775 CPU?

DO NOT use @BIOS to do this, you risk ruining your MOBO... Comprehensive BIOS flashing instructions are here:

Use your old CPU to do the flash, just in case the new one's lack of support might crash the process...
