Should i upgrade my processor??
For future reference to make things easier on both yourself and the tech you really don't need to put all of that in there. :D Quite usually all you need to include is the name of the manufacturer, the particular model, your current processor, and how much ram you have. If your unsure of this all you need to do is right click on the MY COMPUTER option in the start menu and select properties. (for xp... I can't remember for Vista but I believe the process is similar) The bottom right corner of the page will tell you all that you need to know for questions like this.
That being said, based on your northbridge and southbridge combo I'm fairly confident that if you are already using a dual core processor then any gains that you would make from upgrading your processor would be minimal at best.
I'm assuming that you're asking this question due to sluggish performance. If this is coming up only at certain times, I.E. during video game play or video editing, then I wouldn't be looking so much at your processor as your video card if you have one.
If you don't have one then it would probably be a good idea to get one. The onboard video on most motherboards **** eggs. A decent video card will only set you back anywhere from $50-$200 and the gains will be noticeable.
