I am currently using: Intel E6420 Gigabyte p35-DS3R 4X1gb ram 3870
Looking for an upgrade, I am doing most photoshop + little Premiere Pro. Maybe selling my e6420 + 2gb for a potential buyer.
Any suggestion, I am not going to spend so much on this upgrade maybe 200-300 max.
How about th Q9300 and get another 4gb ram?
I was thinking of saving for the i5-750, which going to cost me about 300 with MB + 80 for ram. I know i5 is a dying board. =\

A Q9300 would be a good upgrade, I reckon 4 GB of RAM is enough. The GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R supports the Q9300 after BIOS update F11. If you live near a Micro Center you can pick up a Q9550 for quite cheap.
