Hi I'm upgrading to a new computer, but right now I am still with a hp compaq dc5850. Now since I first got it I installed a GT710, then added an extra 2GB Ram (making a total 4GB). Now the computer's performance is tiring and annoying me, so is there a processor with more than 2 cores that I could upgrade to, considering the current power draw?

Also 4GB ram is kind of the minimum for surfing the web with all the Ad's they have out there.
Got a new 9600B here for $40 or used for $20. https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Phenom-2-3Ghz-533Mhz-HD960BWCJ4BGH/dp/B003CNXPJU/ref=pd_sbs_236_t_0/131-7009479-0989537?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B003CNXPJU&pd_rd_r=fcdc589f-6cb9-4473-9f24-78d232959db7&pd_rd_w=eAMzj&pd_rd_wg=MIbMF&pf_rd_p=5cfcfe89-300f-47d2-b1ad-a4e27203a02a&pf_rd_r=Y93K39S5DAT41FYH9QFJ&psc=1&refRID=Y93K39S5DAT41FYH9QFJ
Just noticed the picture they have in that ad is for an Athalon X2, told Amazon about it.
