im looking at either upgrading my athlon II x4 640 to a FX 8320 black edition (while getting a new mobo) or upgrading my evga gts 450 gddr5 to a mid range gpu much like a 7850 or a 650ti
im only looking to upgrade one and i have a budget of around $250~
any ideas?

or maybe i could get a phenom 965 which doesnt require me to change my mobo, but is it even an upgrade?

what operating system/what resolution/what games?

the 965 and a better card before the 8k series and the same card. but would try a better card with existing processor.

Windows 7 x64/ 1920x1200/ Mostly League of Legends but i'd like to play the new shooter games likes blacklist and battlefield 4 when it comes out
You say better card, would a nvidia or an amd card be better and what brands should i go for?

a 2gig 7870 would be okay. more card than a 965 could push. after that a system upgrade.

If you go for CPU, upgrade to intel i5 and if you go for GPU go for gtx 660 (Ive got one and it costed me 200 €. Works great).

I'd wait for the AMD 9000 series which should launch sometime around October.
