GFX Card: r9 280x directcu ii OC 3gb
Processor : FX 6300 @ 3.7 Ghz Due to bad mobo being replaced soon
Mobo: 960GM-VGS3 Asrock replacing with 990fx sabertooth or gigabyte 990fx-ud3

I'll call it a upper-mid range PC. I would've replace fx 6300 with an i5 or atleast an fx 8320

4k just means fours times as many pixels as 1080p

I would replace your gpu. AMD are good for low end, but once you hit upper mid range Nvidia is better. Also replace your CPU with an i5 for overall better performance, better temps, and better energy consumption.

As for MoBo both are good. Choose what is best suited for you. Most people go for Sabretooth.

maybe 20% with i5 and only in CPU bound situations

generally there is only need to upgrade when you feel your PC isn;t giving you the performance you want

I upgrade my PC ever other year, but mainly just gpu and clearing my HDD. Um I would say expect around a 5 FPS increase, and rendering will be better for games like minecraft, etc.

the thing is the fx 6300 is new and im planning on replacing the motherboard so i can overclock it to 4.5 ghz cause mine wont even let me go past 3.7 without crashing

so would OC + new mobo push me to 15% increase in preformance? or at least noticble gains?

normally a 15% OC isn't easy by anymeans... You will need an exceptional cpu and a really good heatsink. A whole ghz is hard to do no matter who you are...

I'm in almost the exact same situation! And not sure what to do myself:

These are my specs:: FX6300 @ 4.3GHZ
AsRock 970 extreme4
Ripjaw 8gb 1600mhz
Arctic Cooler 13 CO (has kept my temps low and will setup a server soonish and maybe go liquid)
Sapphire R9 290 tri-x OC 4GB
EVGA SuperNOVA G2 750w
Other bits win7 64bit etc

My Motherboard is only 4+1 phase power and so I'm looking to upgrade to a sabertooth 990FX Rev 2.0 to make the whole system more stable.

I'm seriously considering an i5 4690K and a Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 but thats around $570 + I would need a new cooler..... OR just buy the sabertooth and put the rest into an SSD + full atx case.

I've hunted reviews and benchmarks of the i5 and it seems to out perform quite a lot, but in real world gaming I'm not sure I'll see that much of an improvement. Especially since with the FX6300 on the sabertooth I'm confident I could up to 4.5+GHZ making the difference even more minimal.

Also as I understand (and may be wrong) is that slowly more games are beginning to be multi-core reliant? Making the 6core AMD slightly more suited?>
