I have used Blender for 1½ year - or something like that - and have decided I cannot live with my old cpu anymore… I’m for a good Cpu + Ram and Motherboard to upgrade my way too old desktop. For rendering - it is great (GTX 580), but with a Core 2 Quad 2.6 Ghz Cpu working inside Blender is a nightmare!
Sooo… My question is: Which Cpu should I buy?
I am not planning on using it for rendering or gaming - Maybe for After Effects and Photoshop, but mainly Blender…
The CPU budget: $250-400
