Which new processor?

  1. Which processor would best match this setup:

    DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert
    2GB Muskin PC3200 RAM, 2-3-2-6
    NVIDIA GeForce 7900GT/GTO TOP

    I currently have a AMD Athlon 64 3700+ 2.2GHz.

    I don't want to change any other hardware, just the processor. Because in my oppinion, it's getting rather slow.

    The reason I'm asking is because I haven't checked hardware news in a while, and I'm affraid that if I choose one myself, I might choose something outdated or something that doesn't work well in this system. It's main job is running Photoshop/3DSMax, Pinnacle TV, playing games and watching movies.

    About 300-350 Euro's. But there's a three day event coming up near where I live, where you can get new hardware allot cheaper then in the store. Something like the E3 but then for Hardware aswell. I'm gonna check that out first, I think.

    You mean the 2x3.0GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+? That's Socket AM2, and I have a Socket 939 motherboard. I don't want to have to change the motherboard aswell.

    I'd just go with the biggest your m/b can fit. Probably won't be much faster though....
