Upgrade my GPU or CPU/mobo?

Which option offers me the most performance enhancement when it comes to gaming? I'm into SC2, Skyrim, BF4 type of games if that helps. If both of these are bad choices then please give me some suggestions that are in the same price range of these, thanks.

My current specs:
A8-5500 w/ Radeon 7560D APU and a MSI MS-7778 (Jasmine)

Part options:
ASUS H81M-K LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz 6MB Cache Quad-Core Desktop Processor
or
EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2765-KR GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card (not going to OC)

    The 760.

    Upgrading your cpu/mobo does not help in gaming unless you buy another graphics card.
  2. imho go GTX 760 + PSU.

  4. go with the 760 & psu. you won't notice the cpu upgrade anywhere near as much as you'd notice the graphic card.
