Upgrade CPU or GPU

I have the AMD FX-4100 cpu and Crossfired HD Radeon 7770 OC Editions from a while ago. Should I just get one nice beasty graphics card, or hold out a little longer and just got for a cpu upgrade first?

  1. It depends on what you play and at what resolution. I'm leaning towards recommending just waiting to see what new hardware comes out.

    I play RIFT, League of Legends, Guild Wars 2, lots of steam games. I just play a lot of games. I try to play at 1280x720 but if it the games textures don't scale well, or look too crappy for my tastes I just play native 1680x1050.

    Ur 4100 would bottleneck a besatly card like the gtx760,hd7950,hd7970.gtx770 e.t.c. It can hold up good upto a hd7870 with good O.C'ing.
