They are all in the same performance group with 770>280X>=7970. Your old phenom will have struggles keeping up unless overclocked.

So I will buy GTX 770 it comes with it assassin's creed black flag and batman. But I heard someone say that if you have amd board and cpu it's better to put amd graphics card. Is it much better to buy amd card?

One more thing I can't upgrade anything in my pc only the graphics card and ram after one year maybe I have to change the board and cpu what i'm trying to say i don't wanna keep upgrade my pc for next four three years.
So what if i get PS4 is it better ?

AMD and Nvidia work equally good with AMD CPU's! If you upgrade the GPU now that is one expensive piece done when you upgrade CPU and board.
PS4 is if you want to be a console gamer, so you will have to answer that question yourself.

If you want those games go for the 770. Performance wise they are very similar.

850W A-Power < that could be a problem. no name brand psu's wont last long driving high powered gpu's. chances are its not a true 850w psu. what are the amperage specs of the 12v label on the side of the PSU?

But i don't have enough money to do upgrade i can only buy graphics card or PS4

which is better this pc :
CPU: phenom II X6 1090t 9MB cash
GPU: R9 280x
Motherboard: MSI E41 880GM
HDD: 160GB X2
Power supply : 850W apower AK series
RAM: 4GB

OR

I can only upgrade the ram and graphics card.
What is the best for my solution.
Note: I have few problems with the motherboard it gives me 1.4GHz CPU speed it should be 3.2GHz and the sound not working as it's should.

No need for more than 2GB up to 1080P res, really buy the cheaper one (taking games into account) since they are very close in performance.
