Help choosing/upgrading CPU

Hey forum. Newbie here. I apologize in advance if I posted in the wrong area. My question involves upgrading a CPU from a fairly outdated stock PC. MY PC model is Compaq Presario RX894AA-ABA SR5013WM. Now, I did a little research and found the CPU series that my PC is compatible to upgrade with, which are:

Socket type: 775
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
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

My question is could someone please tell me what would be the best option. I'm aiming to get my PC to run better with moderate gaming. Guild Wars2/Diablo3.Money is an issue but would like to aim for the best CPU I can get with my current PC. It will be a while before I can afford a complete upgrade. I apologize if I left anything out. Thanks again.

  1. By the way, my CURRENT CPU is the stock Pentium4 641.
  2. looks like you cant use the e6850 (1333 fsb) so that leave the e6600 (1066 fsb) as the best you can do.
