CPU Upgrade

Specs: Windows 7, Intel e2160 / 4gb
My computer currently has an Intel Dual Core E2160 1.8GHz processor with an Allendale core in it. My motherboard runs at 800MHz FSB. It's got an LGA775 socket. I'm wondering if I can slap any 800MHz FSB LGA 775 processor in there or if I'm limited to only certain series of Core2 processors. Thanks for any input!

I tired but Acer's website is about as useful as a Macbook Air [yeah, bad pun]
I have an Aspire M1640 and I can't really find anything about what CPU's it will support.

If you have a decent motherboard, simply overclock what you have. You can crank the heck out of the Core 2 Duo based Pentiums.

And remember, the new Pentium is MUCH better than a Pentium 4 or Pentium D, so don't be fooled by clock speed. The E2160 kicks the crap out of P4's that run at twice the clock speed.


EDIT: nevermind...you have an Acer.
