I am (obviously) new to the forum and would like to say hello. I have an issue, though. I got a GoPro hero3 for my birthday and now I am finding my computer can hardly play the video at 720, let alone 1080. I am looking to buy a new Cpu/Mobo and will need ram also. I plan on salvaging other components. (CD drive/1TB HD/Fans/etc). I have a 450W PSU.
--I was browsing and found the phenom II black ed. but I'm not sure what I need and don't want to make a mistake and buy something not powerful enough.
I cannot see myself spending >$250.
Would like to add a video card later on..
If it matters: 1.6Ghz 3Gb ddr2

exactly what do you wish to do with the computer other than play 1080 videos from your go pro?
general usage, Facebook, YouTube, online flash games. occasional minecraft/duke nukem. Also with the video, upload to YouTube/or whatever website.
