Hi, I was wondering should I only Buy a MSI Radeon R9 280 3GB, or Buy a new motherboard so I can put an Intel i5-4570 processor and also buy the MSI Radeon R9 280 3GB. My question is, should i pay the extra money for a new motherboard just so I can get the i5-4570 or should i just use the extra money i would save not buying it and spend it on a more expensive graphics card. I dont know how much of a performance boost I would get by upgrading my current processor to the i5, and if its worth it to buy the motherboard as well, (wanting to play high or ultra in most games at good fps). Hopefully someone can give my some advice or suggestions Thanks!

Current GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5850
Current CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.2GHz
Current Motherboard: Asus Crosshair IV Formula.

Save the cash for a more expensive GPU. You will only get minimal performance boost by upgrading the CPU, while you will see a far more significant improvement with a better GPU.
