He is on 775, so he needs new RAM and mobo anyway for any real upgrade.

Anyways, I asked about the best cost/performance GPU on the market in the nVidia forum and they told me to go for the unlocked HD6950 2GB model. So I am asking in the AMD CPU forum about the best CPU on the market in terms of bang for buck (Intel or AMD, doesn't matter)

Thanks!
The best cost/performance CPU actually is the Athlon II x3 450, very cheap and very good for gaming and general purposes. In my country (Spain) it only costs about 65-70€, and for that money is really impressive his performance...

About the graphics cards the best cost/performance actually is the Sapphire Radeon HD5850 Xtreme, for only 100-105€ it beats other graphics cards that costs the double or more...

2500k is the best bang for your buck right now. around $200 used USD...overclocks to 4.5+ on air...you cant beat that. Oh yeah, and it flat out flies.

Overall i5 2500K is the biggest bang for the buck on the market today.
