if you plan to only do like rendering or school work and not game with like demanding titles than that cpu is a good deal imo. what model is your psu besides being just coolermaster? should be fine as that board only takes a 4pin cpu power and it should obviously have that. the fx-6300's don't take much juice anyways.

you should be fine if you get odd issue is would upgrade it though as its imo borderline. that GPU is recommended to have +12 rail with at least 28 amps and your psu has two +12v rails with 12 amp each.

What is the best processor I can upgrade to with the AM2 socket? I may just go that route.

Also, will this play well with my current motherboard? I looked it up and it's a 125W CPU. I just want to make sure it'll play well. I can get this, upgrade my RAM, and have my desktop last a few more years before I finally have to cave in and do a whole new build.

Also, FYI (and I'm looking into this myself) my desktop mobo is:

ACER HT2000 MCP61sm-am

So I'm looking to see if it'll support the 125W CPU or not.

is this what you have? MCP61SM-AM V.1.0 GF6100 | Ecs MCP61SM-AM Dual Core AM2 Motherboard IT will nto support a amd fx 4, 6, or 8 series if that is what you mean since they are am3+.
