Hey guys my question says it all.I currently buying a new rig soon and I want to ask quickly if what would be a better option.My choices are these.Buy a Fx 8320 now but keep my current video card( gtx 50 ti) and wait for the new video cards to be released. Or buy a Fx 6300 and get a gpu somewhere along lines of 7870 or 660 ti.This is mostly due to budget constraints.So should I just keep my current graphics card for moment or buy a new one?

First off, the new GPUs won't be out for quite awhile. We're talking Q4 2013 or even possibly Q1 of 2014.

If you have a decent GPU I would probably go with the better CPU and upgrade your GPU when you have the money. It also depends on what games you're playing and what your monitor setup is like.

Well actually I'm only gonna be running a single monitor at 1080p,It could just be maybe I got the upgrade itch,I tried playing crysis 3 on my current rig and man i couldn't get anywhere near the 40+ fps that I was used to in all my other games.hmm you sure it would be Q4? I thought i heard somewhere it would be late Q2 or early Q3
