Hi,

I have an AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core CPU and I am wondering what next CPU could I upgrade too?

My motherboard is a ASUS M2N32-SLI Series

I am a hardcore gamer and am currently running Nvidia GTX 295.

Thx

Hey there Haalk, since you are a hardcore gamer I would wait till amd drops the new octa-core processors in the summer and upgrade a new motherboard/cpu/ram. But if you don't want to do that I would recommend maybe trying to overclock because the only processor I see right now is a 2.8 ghz and that really aint much of an improvement and you can probably overclock close to that with good cooling. I hope this helps and if you need any help don't hesitate to ask.
