I'm looking to upgrade my comp.

What's a great CPU/Motherboard combo for its value? I'm preferentially sticking with ASUS and AMD.

Thanks!

I should also mention I love to game a lot, especially those games that require extremely good GPUs/CPUs. Such as Splinter Cell Conviction.

I currently have the ASUS m2a-vm. I rather not upgrade my mobo, but if it proves necessary, I will do so.

If you just wish to upgrade your CPU and keep your motherboard there are plenty of options.Just look at the CPU support for your motherboard.
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLan...

Plenty of newer Athlon II X2,X3,X4 and Phenom II X2,X3 and X4 CPU's can be used with just a BIOS update which would be substantially more powerful than your current Athlon 64 X2 3600+ CPU.
Just a simple inexpensive CPU upgrade would do you wonders.
Here is the list I got for an upgrade using your motherboard.
