  1. Go with this cpu; it's plenty fast and affordable:; newegg had it on sale for $100 a couple of days ago. If you're not a gamer, the onboard video with this cpu will do everything you need it to. Although your board supports bulldozers, it may require a bios flash to post with your new cpu, so save the old sempron until you try out the new one. You can flash with that cpu. That artic blue ps may be low end. I use antec or ocz; corsair and seasonic are also good. I recommend you check the specs of any ps before you order; a minimum of 30 amps total on one or more 12v rails should be on any quality brand.
