Default CPU upgrade

I have :
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750
Memory - Mushkin HP2 6400 4GB(PC6400)
HDD - Western Digital 320Gb

I want to sell and get a better processor.I do not know how much i could ask for them.
What processor do you think would be good to buy.

Excuse my English

Thank You

if your looking for faster you could just overclock. 6750 can go pretty good with good cooling. that's just my take on things

If you wanna go dual the E8400 is a pretty solid performer, Q9550 if your looking for a quad. Those E6xxx series CPUs arent selling for a whole lot right now, I wouldnt list it for any more then $125 max.

I don't think going from E6750 to E8400 is worth it. OC that chip a bit. Even I managed to get to 3.2 on my horrible mobo and also do a suicide run of 1m super pi @ 3.6 booting xp from a usb since it couldn't lock the pcie properly. In your case, instead of a new cpu could i suggest another 4870?

And I agree with reality, their not worth anything anymore, i 'only' got offered $100 for my e6750 over in offtopic XD

Don't upgrade to the e8400, you won't really notice a difference especially if you're overclocking. but if you have to upgrade for whatever reason, get the Q9550!
