    You cannot put a modern processor in that computer without also replacing the motherboard. Your CPU is socket 754, meaning you can only replace it with another socket 754 CPU, which haven’t been made in years. There are faster ones than what you have available that are socket 754, but they’re far from modern. It also may be difficult to find one that hasn’t already been used, considering their age. Check eBay. That’ll be your best bet if you need to keep your current motherboard.

    The type of processor you can put in your computer depends on the socket type of your motherboard, which is AM2. Unfortunately, this is a pretty old design and no one is making new processors for this. It would pretty much be a waste of money buying something better than you have (if you can even find something)
    If you want an upgrade you’ll probably have to save a little more and get a newer motherboard.
