If you already have a Core 2 Duo in a 945-based board, chances are that you aren't going to be getting anything much better in there without replacing your motherboard; the i945 chipset only supports some early Core 2 Duo processors.

You need to be more specific regarding your current hardware for us to be able to help you; what is your current processor model, and what is the brand of your computer?

You could build a pretty nice computer for $500-$1000. I would just wait until you have enough money instead of trying to replace the processor (since there are more bottlenecks than that).

I agree that upgrading at this point would be moot, replacing the motherboard would mean exchanging most of the parts inside of the comp. You can build a decent rig for about 700$ with parts from newegg or amazon without paying for peripherals and such, GL.

You did give us the exact model; E6320. While it certainly isn't top-of-the-line any more (nor has it ever been), your processor still is more than reasonably fast; it is considerably faster than the CPU in my laptop, which I've always found to be sufficient even for playing newer games. I would bet that doing something like re-installing Windows or upgrading your RAM would supply you with a decent performance upgrade.
