I will also be on youtube alot ... which one would be better for me... The games I play are League of Legends and Planet side two ... I would like to get into more games thats are fps and stuff but this E-300 apu ... what do you guys think ... honestly im open to any processor that doesnt exceed 120 and juuust maybe 130... and since i come from an e-300 i will be happy with any fps that is 20 or higher on low settings but pref. 30 or higher on medium or low ...

Every single desktop cpu on the market is going to be WAY faster than the E-300.

What is your budget? Do you needs parts for a whole PC?

as i said my cpu can go upto 120 and just maybe if it was an extremely smart move then 130 dollars ... and the gpu is at max 100 ... and I will figure out the mother board later i guess but if you could help me out on that too it would be awesome!!

A $130 cpu and $100 gpu will be worthless to you if you don't have a case to put them in, and a motherboard to mount them on, and a power supply to power the whole thing. Then you need RAM, a hard drive and some form of operating system.

But you need to be sure the parts you have are compatible with any new cpu's and gpu's on the market. What parts do you have? List as many details as you can :)

Is it ddr3 RAM? You know you will have to re-install windows as soon as you hook it up to a new motherboard right?

Ok so you basically need everything, but case, hard drive, cd-rom, and windows. Budget?

Pretty much need four things a cpu+gpu and once I figure those things out I can know what mother board and power supply I need. I am willing to spend upto 130 for cpu and 100 for gpu and 85 for motherboard and how much ever I need to for power supply. If you add that up it comes down to 315 for the motherboard gpu and cpu... thus my budget for those three things is 315 and ill spend how much ever i need for power supply as I dont think they will be too expensive ... I am sorry for not cutting to the chase ... thanks!!

For 28$ more, I would say go this route

Since you don't seem to be computer savvy (sorry), and you're not a huge gamer, theres no reason for you to get an overclocking chip. Intel's are smoother and more reliable and you wont have to worry about heat or power with an i3.

The 7790 graphics card is why my build is more expensive. I use a 7770 right now, and its... tapped out playing games that have high demands (PS2/BF4). 7790 is pretty superior to it, and theres no reason to "go cheap" in that arena.

No this computer wont be a gaming "beast", however it will play any game out now, at least enjoyably if not at the highest settings. With intel chipset, it will be very reliable, cool, and will probably last you a few years. I personally love AMD, but they do require a certain amount of effort and knowledge to utilyze properly.
