Hi All, I have a HP dc7700 which I have added a substantial sized hard drive to and a fairly good graphics card although I still have the intel core 2 duo processor which is holding back some of the games that I would like to buy for the pc. Looking at http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri I have ok specs everywhere except for the processor so obviously want to upgrade it. The website indicates that the processor speed needed for the games I want to run is around 2.7ghz and I have currently only 2.5ghz so would like to upgrade to over 3.0ghz and don't really want to spend a huge amount doing it. I would really appreciate not only suggestions on a good processor to go for but one that will be compatible with the motherboard in the dc7700. Thanks in advance for your help. Marcus.
