I recommend any 6 core CPUs like a 1090T or 1100T because they are good for gaming and photoshop or any CAD programs, and it's cheap(230-250ish) and socket AM3.

it's much better than a quad core(Hexa>quad)

Excellent price/performance ratio.

Get the 955 and OC. You should be able to hit 3.8GHz at least.
