Question Processor Question

I have a compaq presario sr2020nx and Ive upgraded the ram and the gpu now im thinking of upgrading the cpu.

Ive check the specs by typing in the computer name at google and here they are.

Processor Brand: AMD

Processor Class: Athlon 64

Processor Number: 3500

Processor Speed: 2.20GHz

Processor Interface: AM2

Processors Supported: 1

Processors Onboard: 1

Additional Technologies: HyperTransport Technology

These are for the cpu obviously. Ive also ran cpu-z and did a dxdiag. Every time it says that I have a am2 940. Now does this mean that I can upgrade to a amd athlon dual core cpu and if so what would be the best choice.
