The core2 should come with a heatsink.

Nope, since it's from second hand it's just the processor.

yep i've already checked here's the link

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00...

Socket type: 775
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
Core 2 Duo (Conroe) up to E4300
Pentium D (Presler) up to 960 (3.6 GHz)
Pentium 4 (Cedar Mill) up to 661 (3.6 GHz)
Celeron D (Cedar Mill) up to 365 (3.6 GHz)
Celeron D (Prescott) up to 355 (3.33GHz)

pretty much the core2duo it's my best option and buying another botherborad it's out of the table for now

Best solution

You'll be fine,
The celeron D was an 89w part and the core2 is a 65w.

kk, so how about performance? is it worth the upgrade with this motherboard before replacing it?

btw i'm getting the core2duo for about 30 bucks

you should see an improvement going from a single core netburst architecture to a dual core using the core2 architexture despite the lower speed of the e4300. Do you plan on overclocking the e4300?

even if i wanted to do it, I've readed in other sites that with this motherboard (ECS 945gct-hm) i'ts locked from factory because it's a pre-build system so you can't do it and correct me if i'm wrong.
