What can I put in my AM3 socket that is NEW, not "used".  I have a HP Pavillion p6774y.  16G of 1666 RAM and a separate PNY - XLR8 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express Video Card.  I do a lot of intensive 3D modeling and photorealistic rendering.  I've maxed out everything else on the motherboard, I'd like to step up to a new cpu.  The motherboard is a N-Alvorix-RS880.uATX (Alvorix).  I can't find any NEW Phenom II X6 cpu's.  A few "refurbished" and a lot of "used".  AMD doesn't sell the Phenom II anymore, so what replaces it?
