Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5700 @ 3.00GHz
System: Windows 7, 64-bit
I need to find one that's both affordable but has a high clock speed. I'm not sure where to start looking to be honest. I'm not that much of a technical person.
What would you recommend would be best?
I know I will have to find one with a LGA1155 socket. Someone recommended me a an Intel Core 2 Quad processor but I can't find any with the right socket.
Is there any other alternative?
Your clock speed is already pretty decent, it's the architecture that will be different. In your case the only real upgrade options are listed in the previous posts link. Unfortunately finding these is sometimes difficult and might be costly.
What exactly are you doing with your PC? There might be other viable upgrade options.
