I play video games, and i like to record and also livestream , at this moment my computer handles it only if i lower the resolution of the livestream, i use a program called xsplit. Im thinking that the main problem might be mi CPU , since this is the factory CPU that came with my computer, i posted below my computer information , Can someone please help me , and tell me what should i upgrade first CPU or Moderboard?? im trying to no spend a lot of money , but if upgrading any of this two component witll help me, then please someone recomend me a better CPU or Moderboard. thanks in advance.

are you using this pc for gaming? or streaming? or both? im not too familiar with the AMD Phenom II X4 840T, that might be your problem it might not be doing what you need or want. i currently have amd athlon II x4 645 its fairly good at doing what i want it to do, but i want MORE so i was thinking of getting a 965 black edition which i hear is very good for multitasking, but i wanted more gaming so im going with a 2500k and overclocking. im just trying to help as much as i can. im sure others will give you better advice.
