Got a pc for free from a friend who upgraded and just want a better processor for the lga 775 socket it came with. I don't want to spend too much because this is just a small project mainly for a backup pc

Not all 775 MB are created equal. Have you checked the CPU compatibility?

Ebay is best bet. Bought one over a year ago for 120$. Should be cheaper these days.

check out the LGA 771 to 775 mod, with that you can upgrade using cheap Xeon equivalents...Xeon x5460 3.12GHz 12MB cache cost around $45 dollars compared to q9650 3.0GHz 12MB @ $120
