Hello all,

So, my Q9550 is a bit flaky and I'm looking to replace it. My demands for my computer have changed dramatically since I joined the Air Force. I did purchase an HD6850 about 6 months ago, so that is one less expense.

I would like something that supports quick-sync (or is it hyper-threading that boosts encoding?). I wish I could afford an i7-2600(K), but it's not in the cards this year. Which CPU will support Virtu but also not be a bottleneck for my GPU? The cheaper the better. I'm looking to buy CPU, Mobo, and RAM on the cheap.

Thanx for your time.
