    ranging from 130-210

    I can manage..... maybe ill buy a little less powerful version of the core 2

    Do you think light gaming is possible with it

    or can i buy a quad core
  8. dont think ur mobo supports quad.

    wolf dale 3.3 gigahertz would be a decent upgrade for u
  9. Based on the following:

    http://support.gateway.com/emachines/emac/ET1641/ET1641sp2.shtml

    It will not support a Core 2 Quad. Since the current CPU has a Wolfdale architecture, it should support all Wolfdale Core 2 Duos.
