I am trying to upgrade my computer and could really use some advice.

The motherboard is an MSI "990FXA-GD80 (MS-7640) 2.2"  (sorry for the cut and paste).

The power supply is an 850 watt "toughpower" from thermaltake.


Currently I have a "3.60 gigahertz AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core" cpu.


This machine is now 3-4 years old, and while its running okay-ish, I need this machine to last for several more years.

I've upgraded the RAM from 8Gb. to the max of 32Gb, and I'll be upgrading the Video cards next. But I don't have a clue about processors.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
