Why do you feel you need a CPU upgrade? If anything, you need a video card. Have you opened the case & had a look at the board? It *should* be this one:

Notice what is printed on the board just below the CPU socket -- "4 core support". Open the case & check it out.

If jam has the mboard right...

cpu part numbers in blue on the left, minimum bios version required to support recognizing the particular cpu on the right.
Note the minimum PCB version on the right = the mboard version or revision - what is that on yours ?

i have a 650 psu and nvidia geforce gts 250 installed and just want a quad core cpu installed. The motherboard does look like that in the link given but mine say DDR3 for ram and i have 6144 MB of it. I will take a look at the motherboard and get back to ya.

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.
It often has a mboard Revision or Version number printed beside the model number - R or Rev x.x or V or Ver x.x , x usually being numbers, sometimes letters are there too.
We need to know both.

The model is often also displayed on a logo (graphical) screen early in the boot, but it's often not as specific as the specific model number.
