I currently have this PC:
amd 965 be
xfx 6870 df
8 gb 1333 mHz
msi 760m-p34
coolermaster elite 430
ocz modxstream pro 500w
scythe katana 3
I'm in a position to upgrade but I can't decide what should I buy?

It's amd fx 8350 or an 7870/7950.
Take in consideration that i'm 15 and in a few years i'd rather be playing with hookers than games.
If I buy a cpu then it won't bottleneck nVidia maxwell for example.
But i'll get more performance in video games now, but my cpu will be a bottleneck.
Anyway my brain hurts when I think about it so I will let you decide.

If you want a better gaming experience the best upgrade is a video card - especially if you already have a decent quad-core CPU. Go for the HD 7950 as it's very overclockable and has 3GB VRAM, and will last you longer.

keep saving for the hookers.
