  1. It is helpful to tell people what country you are shopping in!
  2. You would also need to factor in DDR3 RAM as well, as your existing DDR2 (I'm assuming) will not work with newer processors and motherboards.

    the cpu you have suggested is bit expensive for me.I also have to factor for my new system 4GB RAM ,A good PSU as well as matching Cabinet
    so i was thinking how about FX4350 or FX 6250
    pl advise
  5. FX 6300 would be a good CPU choice.

    In that case prices in the US do not matter but Indian prices do. Maybe you can pick up a FX6300 and 970 chipset board on your budget there.
