I have recently discovered that my system is upgradeable and have successfully installed an ssd and increased its ram from 4gb to 8gb. The cpu though is it seems not as good as it could be and I'd like to improve upon it as far as I can. My question is do I have to match the tpd rating of 35w to be safe? If so then my best option would appear to be an i5-3470t which I can pick up pretty cheaply. There are others available which will it seems fit the 1155 socket and q77 chipset but the tpd ratings fluctuate. Is it safe to flout this a bit and if so by how much? I'm confused by all the choices! List below are those I believe to be compatible.

I think the one I've mentioned is a good upgrade but don't want to miss out on something better through lack of know how! It's only dual core. Should I get quad at all costs?

Anything else I've overlooked?

Many thanks.

It appears the i5-3470T was an option. If your BIOS isn't the latest available, I suggest you update it before installing a different CPU.

And don't throw too much money at a 7-8 year old PC that's worth less than $100.

Good advice. Many thanks.

Purchased an i5-3470t for very little and the performance hike is notable. Nowhere else to go now upgrade wise as no display card option but extends the system life for a bit longer.
