Professional help usually costs at least 20 bucks an hour, sometimes more..

Best overclockable AMD CPU at the price of an i3-2100 would be the Phenom II 965 or 975, possibly even Phenom II 960T. The 965 is what I'd recommend. Stock speed is 3.4GHZ for the 965, and shouldn't have a problem overclocking it to 3.9-4.2GHZ.

You can get the 6 Core FX 6100 for less than $150. Clock for clock its not as fast as the Phenom II's but it overclocks very well and in certain multi-threaded situations will beat the Phenom II's.

The newer version, the 6200 is also available, but compared to the 6100 its a 125w tdp instead of 95w. This means the 6100 runs cooler so you have more overclocking headroom.

An overclocked Phenom II 965BE will destroy that 6100.

960T = 126$ 95W 3.0Ghz quad-core looks good. Use the stock CPU cooler.
Just make sure the motherboard works with that CPU

You sent me a PM asking me for a recommendation, I gave you one. I don't know if you saw it, as I get email notifications for responded threads, but not for PMs.

Phenom II 965- $120
