CPU upgrade for RS690 chip set?

Does Anybody know what the best CPU the AMD RS690 chip set can take?

we have a ACER ASPIRE laying around and it has an Athalon dual core CPU in it but its old and slow and i want to upgrade it, at least to be able to run something like D3, it has 4gb DDR2 ram and vista and an old ATI 4350 GPU lol..

it runs SC2 on medium with no problem, so i think with a small CPU and GPU upgrade it will run D3 just fine.

any suggestions on both CPU and GPU would be appreciated,

It might be easier if you told us the Acer Aspire model, versus just the chipset. This way we can more accurately locate some documentation. :)

Chances are that it only supports AM2 CPU's at a low wattage tdp 65-89watt being an Acer!

The best info I could locate for this computer was this processor:

As for a GPU upgrade, you have a 250 watt PSU, so you'll need a low end card (though it'll be more powerful than what you got already). So any GPU in the 250 watt range will suffice. I'm a bit dated on cards, so I'll let someone else fill you in.
