Its under the "Mainboard" tab in CPU-Z.

According to a google search, your board *should* support the new Brisbane 6000+ (3.1Ghz).

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.1GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

That's the best your going to get without going with a Phenom, which i have no idea if your board would support or not. The rest of your system looks still look ok. The only part that caught my eye is the 300W PSU. That's a pretty small PSU to be powering a X2 and a 8800GTS.

if its an older 8800gts he should be fine, otherwise he should upgrade that psu asap.
