Just about any Core 2 Quad will work in that system the only quads that are over 95 watts are the extreme edtion and a few of the older quads.

I would suggest getting a Q9550 if you have a MicroCenter near by they have them new for around $180.

Though I wont suggest investing $180 in that PC.
A Q8400 would be good.
But Why upgrade? You wont see a sustancial performance jump in everyday software even with a quad.



is there a way to get more performance out of a duo core ? cause right now i use Photoshop cs5 and it lags when i use the brush, and i have the core 2 duo with 8gb memory and 15tb hard drive all together from my 2 external 5 tb hard drive and one 3tb external hard drive and my two 1tb hard drives inside. my monitor is my wacom cintiq, and my 42in vizio hdtv and i am not 100% sure why i am so laggy, should i uninstall things i dont use, i have used the system tools yet i still get lagg... i hope i can get some help i have the 64bit on windows 7 home premium.

What core 2 duo do you have?

Do you have a dedicated GPU that might be your problem with your lags photoshop uses openGL drawing which would normally be processed by a video card but it looks like your system comes with just onboard graphics which would explain your lags. Try turning OpenGL off by going to Edit>Preferences>Performance then Select Advanced Settings, and deselect all the options inthe GL Settings dialog box. Click OK then restart photoshop if that fixes the lag then a dedicated video card would be a better upgrade.
