What is bottlenecking my system? Phenom 955 or Radeon 6750

Hello,

Im looking at upgrading parts of my system after having it for 2 years and due to being a teenager, I am on a limited budget. During gaming what do you think is bottlenecking my computer? Full specs are as follows:

CPU
AMD Phenom II X4 955 38 °C
Deneb 45nm Technology
RAM
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 3210MHz (11-11-11-30)

ASUSTeK Computer INC. M5A97 (AM3r2) 38 °C
Graphics
AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series (Sapphire/PCPartner) 39 °C

  4. your ram running at 3200mhz? that cant be right. get cpuz to check that.
    but yes the gpu is your biggest bottleneck. you can also overclock your cpu for added performance. with a good cpu cooler they can hit 3.8-4ghz.
  5. It looks like time to upgrade your GPU. Think about these:

    SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100358VXL Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit $139
