I recently went from 4 to 12 GB of RAM before I remembered that it would be wasted if I didn't have a new processor. I game, sure, but my main use would be for medium-heavy video editing. Here are the specs that are important:
Current CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Video Card: GeForce GTX 460 SE Power Supply: 650W ATX12V
I don't have a CPU cooler besides the two huge case fans. I'll look into how to cautiously switch out processors in the future, but any new CPU suggestions would be amazing. Thanks guys!

The simple switch would be to a X4 or X6 both will help with your editing.
