What processor can I upgrade to?

#1
My Dell XPS 720 is few years old, so I was wondering whether a mid-life upgrade might boost my office productivity (cough) - ok, my games experience.

Current processor is an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4 Ghz

System is currently running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 very nicely on 4GB RAM (4 slots all occupied, so upgrade to 8 GB would cost £100+)

Not knowing very much about processor sockets, I'd be grateful if someone could enlighten me as to which processors would actually fit as a one-for-one swap with the Q6600? I understand it might be an academic exercise if the performance increase is not worth the cost.
