OK really need to know what motherboard you have to know what you can upgrade too. Download CPU-Z from www.cpuid.com and tell us what the mainboard is. Also There i no such thing as DDR2 2ghz Its either DDR2 667 800 or 1066 my guess would be its 667. So figure out your motherboard and post back.

Your Ram is 2 X 1 GB not ghz. GB is the size hz is the speed.

Ok well the best CPU you can get is a core 2 DUO E6600. Your board does not support Wolfdale or Yorkfield processors. You might have to update bios but its easy.

Intel Core 2 DUO $99.99

Will be like night and day for your system in regards to performance.

@ SAAIELLO: The cpu you linked is NOT the conroe core 2 duo E6600; it is actually the wolfdale based pentium E6600 (which will not work with the OP's mobo).

@bonsev39: On newegg, the fastest cpu that will work with your mobo is the Celeron Dual Core E1600 (2.4 GHz) for $62. It gives you a ~50% speed increase (plus an additional core) over your current cpu.
