ok so my current rig is a AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego over clocked to 2299 mhz (from a stock of 2000 mhz i think). gig of system ram with a 7900 gs nvidia 256 video ram. to a 42 inch 1080p tv
i have been saving up money for a new cpu for a few years now i have 1000$ not hard limit

things i want to use it for is archiving unarchived hulu burning dvds video games from fallout3 to star craft2.
but the big one is PCSX2 a ps2 emulator the clock rate is main factor for pcsx2 it seems and it can olny use 2 cores
also i would like a upgrade path for the cpu if amd so a mother bord that is likely to have a bios up date would be good for wen amds new cpus come out
i like the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition for amd and the i7 930 for intel the lack up upgrade path kinda irks me tho i also would like a really nice air cooler

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: next 3 months

BUDGET RANGE: Around $1000

Are you an experienced AMD overclocker? If so you could stick to AMD 1055T and overclock without unlocked multiplier, at the same time, saving yourself around $100 in the process. Money doesn't come easy, it's better to spend wisely. Ultimately, choice is yours.

As for other parts, I'd leave it to others to recommend as I'm not from US
