Additional Comments: Simply looking to upgrade from my Athlon II X2 245 to something more powerful to play games like Assassin Creed Brotherhood, The Sims 3, Grand Theft Auto 4 ELC, at 1280 x 720 at medium settings without lag. I was thinking of getting a Phenom II with a cheap board, 4GB of RAM & possibly upgrading the GPU.
