I have a really old cpu and i want to upgrade it. The only information i have from the Motherboard is...
Manufacturer : ASUSTek COMPUTER Inc.
Model : LEONITE
Chipset : Intel - i945P/PL/G/GZ
Southbridge : Intel - 82801GB (ICH7/R)
LPCIO - Fintek - F8000
If this Helps the current cpu i have is Pentium D 2.8 GHz. Heres some information on it... http://ark.intel.com/products/27512/Intel-Pentium-D-Pro...(2M-Cache-2_80-GHz-800-MHz-FSB)

So what processor thats pretty good can fit in my motherboard?

What's the make and model of your computer? HP perhaps?
That isn't a retail motherboard, it's produced by asus for an oem computer manufacturer.
The bios determines which cpu's it will recognize

Here's the link to your motherboard from HP.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3340228

According to that, it supports,
Socket: 775
Supports the following processors:
Core 2 Duo E6x00
Core 2 Duo E4x00
Pentium D 9x0 Dual Core
Pentium D 8xx Dual Core
Pentium 4 6x1 series
Celeron D 3xx series

if this is your board then theres som good news. you can add up to an e6600 core 2 duo
the bad news is there not cheap to buy new... well relativley... you can get 1 new for £50-£70 $80-$110 i wouldnt go any higher as the price to performance gains just aint worth it.

you would do better to swap out the motherboard for a cheap h61 motherboard but if you can afford a little more a z68 board would be better.
Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2-B3 £30/$50 or a Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 (rev. 1.0) for £80/$130
an i3 2100 £90/$130
you can pick up 4gigs of ddr3 for less than £30/$50
all in it will cost about £150/$230 which would give a huge boost over the e6600 or any other C2D and well worth the little extra. as you can then upgrade to any sandy up to a 2700
especialy if you went for the z68 board

Thanks Hexit. I just opened up my computer and looked at my motherboard and it looked just like the one in the picture. So i think im just gonna get the E6600 Whenever i can. Also, i already bought the 4GB RAM.
So if i upgrade it then my specs would be.
Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 GHz
4GB RAM DDR2
EVGA GTS 450 GDDR5

Sounds good if it works (:
