I currently have a dual gpu (r9 270x) configuration, and i'm not seeing the significant difference from a single card. I play the modern meta games such as BF4, Max Payne 3, and League of legends. Is there game tweaking i need to do to make these FPS performance difference with these kind of games (I play steam games a lot as well ~ max payne)? And if so, how do i do that?

Thank you.

You CPU is heavily bottlenecking your GPUs. Upgrade to a good i5 I'd recommend a 4670k and a good z87 motherboard. Then you will notice a difference between one and two cards.

That means a MOBO upgrade as well. Could i just go with an 8350?

You could but on a 970 chip set it'll run mediocre. You have a budget motherboard as it is. You want something that can do x16 x16 or x8 x8 at a minimum don't get a x8 x4 board it'll cause a lot of microstutter
