    upgrading from celeron E1500

    snudge

      Hi,

       

      Im new here and pretty low tech so please go easy on me

       

      i want to upgrade my current cpu, a celeron E1500 (I believe its a dual core running @ 2.2Mhz)

       

      i wish to upgrade without having to upgrade my motherboard also. Its an N826N (D*ll) socket 775, Intel G33 Express, memory is 4 - 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

       

      Im told the board can support the core 2 duo cpu, but whats best possible cpu i can run on this board? Ive recently got into pro tools and i need something which will cut the mustard, which unfortunately the celeron doesnt.

       

      i there anything else i should consider before going ahead?

       

      any help would be much appreciated!

       

      Thanks
