Hello, I want to know which CPU to pick.

I currently have a AMD Athlon II x4 630 @ 2.8 ghz. I have been thinking of getting a Phenom II x4 955 black edition.

I need a CPU that won't bottleneck my future card which would be either a 2GB Radeon 6950, or a GTX 560 2GB.

I will spend about 140 or so, but I dont know if it'll be enough.

Thanks.
:)

obviously if you can (price, power usage, mobo socket) you should get the faster cpu.

neither one will bottleneck your gpu at all. any quad core is powerful enough to feed the gpu consistently.

I'm getting very tired of this nonsense flying around in every thread I read. Some education on the subject:

Other option biostar or asrock , same as to me, but I don't waste money, once upgrade get highly, alway's need a lot of money when upgrade and don't hurry, and this my experience : old system ddr2 + athlon + hd4850 + psu from case :
- first I just upgrade PSU and system still old
- next 2 month motherboard biostar (cheap) + 1 stick ram DD3 value (new mobo + psu and old other hardware )
- next 1 month get extreme ram 2x2GB (cheap)
- next 1 month get phenom 1055T use stock cooler
- next 1 month get cpu cooler
And finally complete still use old case :D  but no problem , for now alway ran at 3.8ghz everyday and ejoy!
Next year yes get Am3+ still use old phenom (no problem )

Are your current with info and knowledge on things like AMd's Llano and it's APU technology.?
How about the latest entries in 'enthusiast level' gaming graphics.?
nVidia and it's issues with the new architecture for the 6xx series, also the GTX 580 is the best thing out there..
Intel and Ivy Bridge and AMD Bulldozer with it's 6, 8 and 10 core chips coming out.?

I'd say that's a good start on current events..
