well, that will depend on what socket motherboard you have and what you do,

If you have a 478 socket motherboard, well just like me, you'll have to do an entire computer upgrade.

If you have a LGA 775 motherboard, we will need to know what motherboard it is. Just so that if your motherboard would support a core 2 duo/quad.

Also what are you planing to do? web, word, gaming, rendering, ect.

yep. You'll have to get a new computer if you want a better cpu.

If you want us to, we can find parts for you to build a computer or find a pre-built computer for you in a price range you set.
