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!
