First time poster here, I was referred here from a friend who told me this is where I could ask a question about my computer.

I am currently using a computer that is a bit dated, but still plays games pretty well, I'm currently in the process of trying to upgrade it piece by piece though.

My motherboard is ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5N-D 1.XX

My current processor(s): 3.00 gigahertz Intel Core2 Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
6144 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready
Multi-core (2 total)

My question: I am inquiring as to what processor I could purchase for this motherboard to give it a boost? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, I don't know where to go from here. Thanks in advance.

Not many CPU's that will give it a boost staying on the same platform. Better start thinking full system upgrade and live with current CPU while setting money aside.
