Hello, I am looking to upgrade my processor without having to change the MOBO

I am currently using a, 2006 Compaq Presario Media Center SR1950NX Desktop PC, OS Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, Ram is upgraded to 4 GB, HDD upgraded from 250 to 301 Gb.... also currently waiting for my PCI-E graphics card to come in, it is a 64 bit 1Gb gforce card with HD output. MY Base processor is, Athlon 64 (V) 3800+ 2.4 GHz 2000 MT/s (mega transfers/seconds, Socket 939.
So i gave as much as i could... so what is the highest i can upgrade to without changing the MOBO.....? I just want to be able to view and stream High Def. movies/videos with no choppy or lagging issues we dont have cable so this computer is our "MEDIA CENTER" literally, till funds are available to get better PC. any info 100% appreciated!!!
