I need to know the Benefits of these two cpu's

Ok I am posting this because later this week i plan on upgrading my phenom II X4 2.8 OC'ED TO 3.22 EITHER A 965 BE OR 1090T Obviously the 965 is cheaper by 100.00 but honestly do i even need a Hex cpu ?

My specs are listed and just want to know what would be a smarter buy i am currently gamming only and ocassional movie burning and video editing since i have a dual connection i mostly stream movies from the hdmi

Just upgraded to 64 bit, new mobo and more RAM. The Mobo supports my AM2 Athlon X2 5400+ but also accepts all AM3 cpu's.. I am looking at a AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 955 3.2GHz. What sort of performance increase can I expect? My 'heaviest' progs are Photoshop CS4 64 bit, Lightroom 3 64 bit...
