    I had a P4 with 3.6GHz stock, and my low-end E6300 Dual Core (1.86GH stock, oc'ed to 2.52GHz atm) outperforms it in every aspect. An E7200 is a good choice. Almost any Dual Core is. But as far as I heard, the 7xxx and 8xxx are on top.

    What's your budget? What can your mobo take? You'll feel an increase with pretty much any modern Dual Core CPU.

    e7200 is a good choice on a budget--- E8400 / q6600 can be had in the same ballpark depending on whether you'd rather have a dual or a quad.

    then go e7200....even the e5200 if minimum is the rule. Both will give good bumps and are highly OCable.

    e5200 is a good option. It's running fast and cool in my back up rig at 3.8ghz. I paid $70 for it.

    I had a celeron d 352 at 4.7ghz and my e2160 outperformed it at stock so get a core based cpu if your on a budget.

    the e2XXX series is real cheap

    If budget is an issue, go witht he E5200. Though even the very low end dual cores will outperform a Pentium 4. Even a Celeron Dual core would probably outperform a Pentium 4 actually.

    Either go for an E7200 if your budget is ok, E2180 if its tight. You'll notice an amazing increase in performance with either!
