Smile Upgrading Computer

Hey, i'm looking to upgrade my processor and wondering if my motherboard will take the one i want and if it will give a considerable performance boost my current specs are:

(From Belarc)

System Model
Packard Bell BV iPower J8600 PB84100101
System Serial Number: 100106190350
Chassis Serial Number: 50424E
Enclosure Type: Desktop

Main Circuit Board
Board: Packard Bell BV P5NSLI 1.XX
Serial Number: 50424E
Bus Clock: 266 megahertz
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD P5NSLI 0204 04/18/2007

Processor
2.13 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
4096 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready
Multi-core (2 total)
Not hyper-threaded

Display
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
LG W2252 [Monitor] (23.0"vis, February 2008)

I'm looking to upgrade it to a Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 (the one here)
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130483...roduct_reviews

Will my motherboard be able to take it and will it be worth upgrading?

Thanks!

I beleive this is your Mobo though.

Why don't you just buy an aftermarket heatsink for cheap and overclock your processor to match the speeds of the one you want to buy?

most intel 2 core duos use socket LGA 775
but, I dont think it will give you a "considerable performance boost"
although your CPU is 2.16ghz and the E6850 is 3ghz, unless you plan on over clocking the money would make a small difference.

I'd be tempted to go quad, rather than C2D - Allthough it depends on what your using the computer for.

Anyway, I wouldnt get the Processor you linked to - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/139971 is Cheaper, and better.

Thanks for all the replies, i mainly want a processor for gaming and i've heard the quad doesn't use all of its cores as of yet.
I'll go for the one you've linked me and overclock it ^^ should be decent then ^^
