I am planing to upgrade my PC. I am looking for an AMD Processor. I use Photoshop and Illustrator, and occasionally Dreamweaver.I do not use 3D max, Maya or any motion graphics software, and I do not play any games. I am looking for a processor which will be compatible with Windows 8, and a compatible motherboard. Thanks.

AMD FX-8320 Piledriver 3.5GHz Socket AM3+ and ASUS M5A87 Socket AM3+

But this is sort of a high-end option

One from the FX series would do (8350 BE or newer if you need more power). As for the motherboard, make sure you get one that’s “Windows 8 ready”, if you’re going to use Windows 8 it will start faster (Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 with fast boot).

Yes, AMD Phenom is outdated in my opinion. I recommend you: FX-8350 > FX-8320 > FX-6300.

I have an FX-8350 with ASRock 970 Pro3 MB .

Whatever you do, don’t go with the FX-6300. Barely any better at all than a 6 year old Q6600 Intel for audio production honestly. I was pretty ticked after benchmarking it to see how barely passable it was.

maybe you need to know these :
Athlon/phenom need : AM2/AM2+ mainboard
Athlon 2/Phenom 2 need : AM3/AM3+ mainboard
FX Series : AM3+ mainboard
A series : FM1 or FM2 mainboard
correct me if i’m wrong

i’m also building my pc next week to replace my 6-7 years old amd athlon 64. as i’m tight budget but need good performance i choose this spec for my next week project :)

CPU AMD athlon X3 455 3.3ghz (will UC fourth core to phenom 2 X4 b55)
Mobo Asrock AM3+ N68C-GS FX

both around MYR370/$120. i’m not hard core 3d/graphic motion/gaming person. just doing Photoshop and some Muse template, this 2011-2012 pc spec is enough for me for next 2-3 years :)

*btw yeah FX series better than phenom. maybe you can consider latest A series but it need FM socket mainboard. :)
