    Huh? Just upgrade your video card, you processor is good enough.
  2. There's too much variables in the two tests.

    The 4770+670 one is done on a version 1.1 of Fire Strike and Phenom+7970 is done on a version 1.0.
    4770+670 is done on Windows 8 and Phenom+7970 is done on Windows 7.
    4770+670 is done on a HDD and Phenom+7970 is done on a SSD

    7970 is faster then GTX 670 especially when you push it to the limit. Don't buy alienware desktops, they're overpriced.
