The AMD Phenom x4 is actually cheaper with 4 cpu cores compaired to Core 2 duo which has 2 cpu cores, you will get a better deal for less money on a AMD x4.

Heres a chart you can look at
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q3-2008/3DMark-Vantage-CPU,817.html

I just got myself the AMD Phenom 9650 for 150usd
The core 2 duo e6600, which I would recommend from the core duo series costs around 200 usd.

Note that the Duo only has 2 cpu cores. You get double the power on a phenom 4x with 4 cpu cores
So the phenom is definitely the best choise! (double the power for 50usd less)

Anything else?

What CPUs can I update the system


You have a AMD Mobo, You can ONLY use AMD processors, A list can be found here: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12605_div/12605_div.HTML BE ADVISED, if you haven't done a CPU upgrade before, do some research and crossreference with the Mobo Manufacturer's specs, keep in mind components work together. One component may not give the preformance you expect. That said, it's a easy upgrade along with extra Memory, 4GB for 32bit, more for 64bit, Faster,7200rpm's, HDD and another HDD is inexpensive and easy. Most can be found on Ebay for little money.

Your socket is AM2. You can put any AMD processor that has AM2. If the processor is AM3 just upgrade the bios of your motherboard and it should work. If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers
