CPU buying suggestions

Last response: in CPUs

I have just received some unexpected money (About $200, give or take $50) for a new processor.
I play a lot of games, but do little rendering, video editing, or anything of that nature.
Any help in deciding what to get? I have a socket AM3+ mobo.

I can't really recommend upgrading from that yet.

Oc the little brothers and you can't tell them apart

8120 ($144) @ 3.9 ghz CPU Mark 8,182
8150 ($159) 3.9 ghz CPU Mark 8,333

Same for the 8320/50, I'm cheap and found an 8120 on azm for $123 delivered just to good a deal to pass up (it hasn't shipped yet, I guess it still could be to good to be true)

I'm replacing a 955 I've had FOREVER it that maxes at 3.7ghz cpu mark 4500, so a 8120 can double it up with a 4ghz+ oc, every other part is new current gen a dammit I want a new cpu. And if you're not going to trash everything and move to intel then this is it for well forever in "cpu years"

AMD Phenom II x4 965 with a bit of overclock can handle todays games. If you want to upgrade, look at your GPU.
