AMD FX-4100 @ 3.6Ghz
-RAM
8,00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz
-Motherboard
ASRock N68-VS3 FX
-Graphics Card
AMD Radeon HD 6670
-Hard Drives
466GB Western Digital WDC WD50

Thanks for your help!

There isn't a bottleneck in that computer right now but the video card is on the weak side, so if your computer is used mainly for gaming then you want to upgrade the video card. A 7850 or 660Ti would be good choices to start with and depending on what you can afford you can go from there.

agreed. nothing in that system particularly bottlenecks itself.

the gpu is weak, and you could stand to upgrade the cpu too...
a 650ti Boost and a FX 6300 would be a significant and affordable upgrade over what you've got. (just make sure your bios is upgraded to 1.7, that's the upgrade that gives support for the fx6300)

I also agree, I have the FX-6300, and while i thought i was doing better going for the HD 7870 OC, I SHOULD have gone with the 660ti BOOST! You WONT be disappointed, AND it will remove any theoretical "bottleneck" for at least a year or two if we're lucky (Moore's Law)
