Exclamation Help!!

Right now I'm running an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe with an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ at 2.0ghz. I'm looking to run faster and Im wondering what you think the best CPU-MB combo would be...

Any suggestions would help. I'm a huge gamer but I also do lots of multi-tasking (eg: photo-editing, listening to music at the same time) You know that sort of stuff.

Thanks,
Nick

Wouldn't it be better to get the evga 680i? They have it on Newegg for $239.99.
