My son has a Compaq Presario SR1403QM with an AMD Sempron Processor 3000+ 1.81 GHz, 512 MB Ram, and a GeForce 7600 GS video card.

The new Warhammer 40000 Dawn of War game is freezing up... Is it possible to upgrade the processor for under $150? If so, which processor should I purchase? They seem to have good deals on pricewatch.com, but I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks!

The max CPU that can be put in this is a socket 754 Athlon64 3700+.
The socket 754 cpus are no longer manufactured. Can be found
second hand at e.g ebay.

You could upgrade the RAM to 2GB (2x1GB PC3200, DDR400)

I think you refer to part II of the game, released a few days ago.
