Default Would Intel Core 2 Duo Be Compatible With Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower

Hi all, I have a Compaq Evo D510 convertible minitower that I was given for free, I am thinking about putting a Core 2 Duo Processor in, From my research haven't been able to find anything that clearly tells a yes or no answer, If not what would be a suitable CPU upgrade?

Specs are here Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower*-* Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower PC - Specifications - c00338510 - HP Business Support Center

Hi BK_123

Your PC is socket lga 775 and Core 2 Duo can be bought in 775 (eg) E8400 but you need to go to your Motherboards web site and check compatibility.
