Not recommended to upgrade a 775 socket processor, maswell buy a brand new motherboard with an up to date processor such as the core i3,i5 or i7

The best 775 socket CPU out there is the Core 2 Quad, but they are discontinued.

Then you won't be able to use virtualization.

I would go for the Pentium D 960

That is the best Pentium D Processor out of the whole lot.

Oddly, the Pentium D 925 seems to be the only CPU in that series that doesn't have VT-x...

Any way check this out!: http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.asp...

I'd look for a Core 2 Duo E6320 or better. All the other CPU's on that list do not have VT-x! Mind the Spec # as this board seems to be picky too!

The Pentium D 945 is by far the most common of the duo-core Pentium D's and are the cheapest of those CPU's here in the US. People can't give them away.

No such thing as a dual core Pentium D, don't be scammed by it. They say its a dual core but it really isn't. I have a friend working for Intel and also have many university teachers, because I study computers at university.

Pentium D's are not true dual core CPU's. My best advice is if you want to, you can upgrade but if I was you I would just keep it and save for another computer and go for an Intel core i3 or even a cheap 1155 socket dual core.

Atleast 1155 will be around for sometime, and you will have the option to upgrade.

Wrong. Dual-Core Pentium D's were true dual-core processors. Most Pentium D's were single core with hyper-threading, hence the fake core controversy. Pentium D 8xx and 9xx CPUs were true dual-cores. The 965 and 955 CPUs had dual-cores with hyperthreading so they actually showed 4 cores!
