I too have a 955 and I have had no problems with it. Although I don't do any overclocking so I suppose I haven't really tested its capabilities.

how bout a GTS250? will that be better?

That would definitely be better but not best but definitely a huge step up from that other card!

No need for a Phenom.An Athlon X3 would be perfect,an X4 more than sufficient.Unfortunately microcenter has neither-so

that looks good but I forgot to mention that he wants USB3 and SATA 6Gb/s.

I would just like to say, loook at the sig. The 955 is a good chip. Mine wont' clock higher because it has a voltage wall and I am not willing to push more then 1.55 volts through it.
I can run 4ghz with 1.35 volts which is what I am running now.

An Athlon II X4 840 will be fine honestly. $100 on newegg. AND this chip has the possibility of unlocking to a Phenom II hexacore
