New CPU socket 775


I ve never swapped my CPU before but im considering an upgrade for my Compaq Presario sr2009uk.

it currently has a 3.06ghz pentium 4 processor (Socket 775).

im mainly using it for HD movies but even with a ATI HD 2600pro im still using about 40%+ cpu processing, can anyone recommend me a reasonable upgrade which will improve over my current setup, preferably less than £100.

thanks in advance.

Looking at the HP website youre limited on your options:
* Pentium D 900 series Dual Core (Presler)
* Pentium D 800 series Dual Core (Smithfield)
* Pentium 4 500 (Prescott)
* Pentium 4 600 (Prescott)
* Celeron D (Prescott)
* Celeron D (Cedar Mill)

Which means
Intel Pentium D, 940, 2x3.2 GHz, 2x 2MB Cache ~ £85.76
Intel Pentium D, 945, 2x3.4 GHz, 2x 2MB Cache, ~ £101.29
or a Pentium D 800 dual core if you can find one

If you're very lucky (you'll need to check with HP) the board may support
Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2140, S775, 1.6 GHz, 2x 512KB Cache ~ £42.88
Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2160, S775, 1.8 GHz, 2x 512KB Cache ~ £55.80
