Depending on your BIOS you may be limited in terms of chips, since OEMs aren't known for updating boards they never expect someone to upgrade. CPU cooling may be another issue as stock coolers in OEM computers tend to be a bit on the flaky side. A high end Brisbane based chip (up to 3.1 GHZ) might be the realistic limitation for your system.
