I am willing to get upto 45$ CPU cooler so that i can have the Same performance as the i3 or FX6300 aslo I have set my sights on the HD7850 2GB or the 7870LE so can someone help me here..?
I'd do a motherboard upgrade to a good (FX) AM3+ with PCIe 3.0 and SATA3 and invest in new memory. You should be able to use your Phenom in it until you are ready to upgrade it. Then, I would, upgrade graphics and SSD's.
