I need and opinion

Does socket 775 still have life? I ask because i currently have a Pentium Dual Core E5700 clocked @ 3.5GHz. I want to upgrade it to a core to quad something to complement my gts250. I'm not going to spend no more then 100$ on this chip and I was just curious if it was a OK investment?
