Upgrading Emachine t5088 to DUAL-CORE.

Hello guys, I want to double check before I order wrong things. (Trying to upgrade my 2nd PC)

http://www.emachines.com/products/products.html?prod=T5088
Above is My spec and the chipset is "Intel 945gc Express"...

According to intel's website, http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/express_flyer.htm.
My mobo supports dual core so I decided to go to Newegg and found some CPUs.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010340343%2050001157%201302820275%201051107411%201050744519&name=Pentium%20Dual-Core&ActiveSearchResult=True

There are three different types of CPUs and can you guys help me to find a best one?

If that is a wrong cpu, please correct me...

For the memory, do I need ddr2 400mhz? since a cpu has 800FBS.

THANKS GUYS!!

  1. Looks like it only supports up to the Pentium 4 641. Can you run a program like CPU-Z, Everest, to find out more computer specs?
  2. It appears that this Post / Thread has died.

    I'd like to give it a BUMP as I have the same questions.

    I'd also like to run Virtualization and Intel indicates there are compatable CPU's to replace the 641.

    Can anyone chime in and help revive this discussion?
