i7 suggested a good build for you. Just so you know the cpu is a part of a computer, you can think of it as the brain of the computer it does all the calculations and controls everything else (pretty much).

Thank you for the suggestions. I really appreciate it. Anyway, I found my receipt of my previous cpu hardwares. This are the hardwares:

Intel pentium dual core E5500 2.8Ghz/2mb L2 cache/800fbs/42nm lga775

Elite G31T-M7 S775/C2D/1333MHZ/DDR2 800/PCI-E/V/S/ LAN

KINGSTON 2GB DDR2 PC800 MEMORY

SEAGATE 500GB 7200RPM SATA

SONY DRU-870S 24X SATA BLACK DVDRW

COLTECH ALL-IN-1 INTERNAL CARD READER

INNO3D GFGT220 PCIE 1GB GDDR3 128BIT VGA DVI HDMI VIDEO CARD

BLADE 5020R RED BLACK TRANSPARENT SIDE PANEL W/ 80MM FAN

COOLERMASTER 460WATTS ATX REGULAR V2.3 POWER SUPPLY

WINDOWS 7 HOME BASIC

This hardware's was 4 years ago. And when I'm playing HoN this past few days my computer is freezing and I cant do anything but to switch it off. Now I want to upgrade some of it, so that my pc wont freeze anymore. I use my computer 4-5 hours a day. I think my budget will be lowered to 200-300$ because I will just buy certain parts that are needed. Thank you again!!
