Hey guys, i am looking to buy a new cpu (off newegg)
Newegg.com - CPU Processors, Intel CPU, AMD CPU, Intel Processor, AMD Processor, Intel Core i7, Intel Core i5, AMD Phenom II x6

and i am needing some advice :3

help me out?

My max is probably $300..

my current specs:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 820 2.80Ghz (Quad Core)
Hard Drive: 1650GB + 500 External HDD
Memory: 5GB DDR3 RAM
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB DDR5
Motherboard: Asus Military Grade one

When i built it i realized that the cpu was kinda lower end quad core, so i will get a new one =]

Could you confirm the model number of your motherboard. The only thing I'm finding for "Asus Military Grade" are X58 Intel boards.

Also, what is the primary use of this computer (gaming, movies, audio/video rendering, CAD)

Primary Use is Gaming/Editing

High performance though, as i am mostly trying to record my gameplay at high resolutions..

I am also going to check the actual model of my mother board, but i do know it is AM3, which supports six cores.
