AMD Phenom x4 925 upgrade to FX-8320 or keep it and invest money in GPU?

Hi,

I'm building new PC. So I am in a crossroad should i keep my Phenom x4 925 and try to OC it thou i never OCed before and buy 770 GTX for the money (will it bottleneck) or should i get new CPU FX-8320 and buy cheaper 760 GTX? I eventually plan getting steamroller if they come for AM3+ sockets....

I already bought Asrock 990fx EXTREME 3, 2x4GB Kingston Hyperx Beast 1600Mhz, OCZ Fatal1ty 750w and Zalman z11 plus case.

Also I plan on buying SSD Kingston v300 60gb, or should I go for 120gb (I plan to use it only for OS and Diablo III) or maybe leave it for some other time for now and focus my money on CPU/GPU

    If it is just for OS and Diablo 3, go for the 60GB. I would keep the rest for a better CPU/GPU. I suggest you go for the 8320 and GTX 760, the Phenom II 925 is not suited for overclocking and underpowered even for the GTX 760.
