How do i improve the performance of my PC? GTX 780?

I have a 3 yr old PC. I would like to ask the community on how will i improve my PC for gaming. I don't have enough money to build a new one and just a couple of hundred bucks to spend.

Asus p6x58d-e
Intel Core i7-950
Inno3d GTX 460 OC 1GB Gddr5

  1. buy a gtx770 and a couple if gigs of more RAM and a good cpu cooler to oc your processor
  2. Thank you for your fast response! Why aren't you recommending a GTX 780?
  3. if you get the will need to oc your processor like hell to keep up the processor with your gpu (especially in cpu intensive games)

    so you will have to get a better cooler than the h50

    what about your psu by the way?????
  4. Will adding more ram yield to better gaming experience? I overheard that 6gb of ram is "ok" for gaming?
  5. I have a corsair hx750 for my psu Sir.
  6. 6gb is good enough for gaming....but many recent games now recommend having 8gigs.

    a couple of extra gigs of memory never hurts performance

    Recommended specs for BF4 (official):

    OS: 64-bit Windows 8
    CPU(AMD): 6-core
    CPU(Intel): 4-core
    RAM: 8 GB
    HDD: 30 GB
    GPU(AMD): Radeon 7870
    GPU(Nvidia): GeForce GT660
    VRAM: 3 GB
  7. At what frequency should i be clocking my cpu Sir?
  8. 4-4.2 ghz should be good....and please don't call me "sir"

  9. Thank you very much! But sorry for being stubborn, but can a buy a good cpu cooler first? Overclock it to 4ghz then buy a gtx 780? Then add an additional triple channel kit next year? What do you think?
  10. What CPU cooler do you recommend?
