I have a Presari SR5410F. It has a MS-7525 Motherboard, and a Pentium Dual Core E2160 rated at 1.8GHz. I have upgrade my ram from 1Gb to 4Gb. I have upgrade my GPU to radeon HD 4550. I have Win 7 32 bit installed. I have been looking at Motherboard/CPU combos as that seems to be the best route for me to go with my current budget of 150-200$ I have a couple ideas i wanted to ask to see what peoples opinions where. If you know of a better deal please tell me and link it. :)  This is what i am thinking of so far. this is only about 109$ but its only a Phenom x4 this one is about 140$ and it has a Phenom ii x4

i know the Phenom II is better but will i notice a huge difference? or would i be fine with just the first one? The only gaming I do is MMOs like WoW and Runes of Magic are my main two. other than that i dont do much other than listen to music, surf, and stream movies from my pc to my 360. If i missed any info you need please let me know ill be glued to my pc for hopefully a decent discussion. :)  Thanks for the help everyone!

Also, when im looking for a upgrade I am trying to go a cheaper route. I would like to get a motherboard that can use DDR2 as i dont know if i can afford, mobo,cpu,ram all together. thanks :)

also i have a stock PSU with 250w power. I know i need another one but will it be enough to power the quad core and new mobo?
