u can try the AMD FX55, those are pretty good from what i hear. but when i build my computer its gonna have the AMD Athlon 64 X2 (or X3 by the time i can finally do it)

Dar Raccon,

I would wait to upgrade your CPU just a little while longer. Both Intel and AMD are putting out new processors this Fall.

If you can't wait AMD has the gaming market now but your going to pay!

Let us know,
