I have a custom built 64 bit PC about three years now. I have the AMD Phenom™ II Processor in it. I have 16 GB of ram. a nice graphic card too.

 

The big app that I use is Adobe Creative cloud. I would like to get a new AMD Processor. My score is 4.4. 

 

It runs great. But what about an upgrade of an AMD Processor or an Update graphic card?

 

Any suggestions ? What $$$ for a new Processor too ? 

 

Thanks !

Something like 8320 would be good , if that Adobe creative Cloud  can utilize lot of cores.

It cost around $160

If you want a serious CPU, you go intel.

That would require him to swap out his entire motherboard dude, Intel's CPUs ain't gonna fit into an AMD socket.

HA ... I am sticking with AMD, man !!! Actually, I gonna get the MSI, nVidia  GeForce GTX 650 2GB 128bit graphics card. 

 

My AMD Phenom™ II Processor is pure awesome .... so the upgrade graphic card will be great. Thanks for opinions !!!

I went from PII 965 to FX-8350 - definitely worth the upgrade

No doubt, I was saying it generally. I would not recommend any AMD product to anyone other than the APU's if its to a newbie on a budget... even then you're better off just getting an i3.
