Like trotter said, we'll need the model of your motherboard, or at least make/model of your computer so we'll know for sure which cpu the motherboard supports. But in any case, it'll have to be a socket 775; so core i3, i5, i7 are out of the question as those are for a different socket. You may be able to upgrade to core 2 duo or core 2 quad depending on the motherboard.
