Gigabyte $521.94 got my vote
the cheapest and has the highest clock
and 4GB version is a waste

btw you have weak old build, i am sure old Phenom + 4GB ram will bottleneck 770

I am looking to get a new build. What do you recommend? BTW, I am getting a 650W PSU and another 8GB of VRAM when I get a card.

My current CPU is a "AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor (4C 3.2GHz, 2GHz IMC, 4x 512kB L2, 6MB L3)". This is not much different than the "Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor" stats. Is it worth buying a new CPU? What increase in performance would I experience?

^ core count doesnt matter, even GHZ number. it is about computing performance on benchmark
i5-4670K is miles away from phenom

Is there a CPU that would fit into my current mainboard that you recommend? Or should I get a new mainboard as well?

You'll be better off building a new system, while salvaging what parts you can from your old one.

Their data's wrong - both have a DL DVI-D port and an SL DVI-I port.
