I'm looking to upgrade my cpu to a newer model, but I know very little about hardware.

My current set-up is:
ASUS M5A97 motherboard
AMD FX 4100 quad-core (the part I'm wanting to actually replace)
Nvidia GeForce 750 ti GPU
8 gb ram
500 gb HDD

I know it's a fairly old rig for the most part, but it's all I've got and any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. I really just need a newer model cpu that will work in my current build.

Thanks a lot! I'll check into the latest version of the BIOS and see about getting the FX 8350. That's actually the model I was thinking of getting, but I wasn't sure how compatible it was.
