What is the max I can go with my processor

This question is not answered

I have a dell inspiron 531s. It came with a 4000+ socket Am2 64 bit processor dual core and I like how high can I go with a new processor. The biggest dual core processor is a 6400+ .  I know about the am2+ socket that will take the quad core but am I limited to 6400+ or and lower than that or can I go up to the tri core and or the quad core?  some time it is cheaper to go far up than just to go up a bit when it comes to processor. A an hoping that some one might know this complex question. Thank You
