Hi i'm a editor/3D designer looking to upgrade my cpu, i have an "asrock h81m vg4 r2.0" motherboard and i'm not sure which cpu it supports and which cpu is good for the kind of work that i'm doing.
Any help would be much appreciated. :)

if your looking for a editing or 3d design computer it supports 4th gen xeon and i7 so I would look into chips from Ebay here is a list of supported CPUs for your motherboard.

price is the big factor for this what are you looking to spend and what kind of space for a cooler do you have since cooling is important when you are dealing with performance.

that's actually a very respectable computer right off the rip.

the 4790K is top i7 and the E3-1286 v3 is the top xeon both will be similar the i7 is unlocked and you get more top end on it but the xeon might be a lot cheaper and be the better option overall both are 4 core 8 thread cpus and both clock up to about the same and the non K 4790 is basically the same as the xeon and locked your looking at 4.1Ghz xeon vs 4.0Ghz 4790 vs 4.4+Ghz  4790K for turbo boost the K is overclockable.

Honestly it might be worth it for you to go for something like an R5 2600 and cheap B450 board. That will get you an wxtra two cores and 8 more threads and should be cheaper than a 4790k ($450ish right now). Heck for that price you could get a r7 2700x and B450 board and double your current amount of ram: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/3QD8sZ

 

Then throw an extra PSU at the problem and turn your old CPU and Motherboard and some cheap ssd into a render server.
