I have a radeon HD 7900 series video card. It's an upgrade to an old system with this mobo + processor:
Motherboard: Gigabyte x84-DS4
Processor: Intel Core Duo e8500
My questions are:
1. Do I need to get a new mobo and processor to get the most out of this card?
2. What do you recommend I purchase to support this card? My price range is $250, but feel free to go over a bit if that's the smart thing to do. I'd hate to lose a bunch of performance trying to save $50.
Currently the machine is used for World of Warcraft and Starcraft II, Skyrim, and a few other games.
Thanks in advance!

Not really... a i7-5960X, in theory, would overpower an FX in just about everything even if it also have 8 cores. The 8 cores on the FX is weaker than an i7-4770K. And also, the i3-4330 combo has more upgradeability. But whatever, I guess.
