Cheap yet good CPU

Hello i've had my gaming computer for almost half a year and its starting to get slow on me. I knew this would happen since i could not build one myself since i don't have a job (i just turned sixteen). Here are the links to the parts in my computer:
www.asus.com/Motherboards/M4A89GTD_PRO

http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/processors/pheno...

http://www.amd.com/US/PRODUCTS/DESKTOP/GRAPHICS/ATI-RAD...

i also have a 500gb SSD and a 500gbgb hardrive, and a 700 watt power supply. I wont be putting in the CPU until i get a new cooler i still use the stock asus cooler. I bought this from a guy on craigslist who built it for his girlfriend (who was way out of his league) and he wanted to sell it because she didnt wanna play counter strike with him ... shocking right? My price rang is max 100 dollars because i got 80$ to amazon and i have 20$ in my wallet. I am using US dollars. What i need help with is finding a new CPU so that my computer does not lag when I use the internet (google chrome) and open multiple tabs at once.

    On Amazon, a Phenom II 955 is probably your best option.
