    I would upgrade to a i3-4160 CPU. In multi-threaded programs, the processor is estimated to have 38% higher performance. Single-threaded performance of the Intel i3-4160 is better.The i3 uses less power so heat will be less of an issue.

    if you can spend $250, you could upgrade to a i5 CPU. But even the i3 is an improvement over the AMD CPU.
