Default CPU Upgrade

I have been thinking of upgrading my 2.01Ghz CPU Athlon 64 3200+.
This is my full specs list of the CPU i currently have:
Cores 1
Threads 1
Name AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Code Name Orleans
Package Socket AM2 (940)
Technology 90nm
Specification AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3200+

I want a recommended upgrade to upgrade the CPU hopefully to around 3Ghz using that AM2 (940) Socket.

Default Re: CPU Upgrade

It's not very cost effective to upgrade such an old platform. Find any old Athlon X2 used. I wouldn't pay anymore than 30 bucks for one.
