which to upgrade first processor or grafix card?

hi guys this is my first time post.
so my current rig spec

fx 4300 @ 3.8 ghz
MB- asus m5a97 r2.0
24 gig ram @ 1600mhz
gtx 750ti
win 10 x64

my prob is that i want to upgrade my rig to get more fps .so i hav money to buy fx 8350 or a rx 480 4gb ,and i am confused which to upgrade first to get better gaming .i cant buy both rx 480 and fx 8350.And buying rx 480 and overclocking my fx 4300 solve the bottle neck.

  1. First of all, you have a very low quality motherboard.

    Overclocking your current CPU may destroy it and/or your motherboard. You only have a four-phase power delivery system on that board, it's terrible. Not suited for FX chips at all, even struggles to overclock Phenom II chips.

    A graphics card upgrade will worsen your CPU bottleneck and put more stress on your motherboard. Don't do this either. The motherboard is the part that needs your attention right now.

    What is your current power supply?

    Your power supply will handle an upgrade to a 1050 ti, but your motherbaord will not be happy about it. Upgrading your graphics card puts more stress on the CPU, and therefore the VRMs on the board. This is something that you don't want with your board. There are two common ways for VRMs to fail.
    1) They become a closed circuit (also known as a dead short). This means that all incoming voltage will pass right through. The 12V from the power supply will go right to the CPU, destroying it immediately. This type of VRM failure occurs when the VRMs are pushed beyond their limits. This may happen if you overclock your CPU.
    2) They become an open circuit (known as a broken circuit). No power passes through. Your CPU is safe, but the board will still be useless. This type of failure is usually caused by manufacturer defect and rarely occurs from overclocking.

    What country do you live in and what's your total budget? You could move to a Skylake Pentium (much better than your current CPU) and a basic H110 board for less than $100. You'd need DDR4 of course, but that can be had second hand rather cheaply on sites like eBay. Come back here to verify compatibility before buying your memory.

  6. so if i upgrade both my gpu and cpu, will it solve my prob becz i cant upgrade my MB right now

    It will make your problem worse. That board is not meant for FX chips. It technically supports them, but struggles to run them properly.

    You're likely upgrading because you're unhappy with the performance right now, am I right? Part of your issue is likely that your CPU is not getting clean power thanks to your motherboard being such low quality. Upgrading to a higher CPU will only make this issue worse. Upgrading the graphics card will make the CPU work harder, which again will intensify your issue.

    i am from india. But sorry i cant afford a new whole system upgrade. And i hav 3 ddr3 ram and a cool cabin i cant sell the mb processor and gfx catd alone becz no one will buy it. if i had money to upgrade to ddr4 i would surely go for rayzen rather than an intel.

    Here's my recommendation (and you're probably not going to like it): Take some time to save up some money, and then upgrade your motherboard and CPU. A GPU upgrade now will put too much stress on your CPU, which will stress your board and that's the situation you want to avoid right now.

    check this thread it says itz a good mob for overclocking

    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/283351-29-asus-m5a97-overcloking

    itz not the case that i am getting poor performance itz that my gfx is only 2gig and the games now i play need 3gig at lest for smooth play. My overall performance is not bad, i hav not experienced any performance issue so to get more vram i thought to upgrade my gpu.

    The main worst thing i hate abt my pc is that itz heating issue. The stock cooler sucks it sounds like hell,and my idle temp is abt 41c. Here in my place itz abt 30c room temp and thats a prob too.

    I don't see much evidence that those users really know what they're talking about. Looks more like a conversation where the mutual understanding was "I'll give it a try". Although the information on CPU throttling temperature is correct.

    Attempting to overclock without first knowing the quality of your hardware is risky. The OP of the linked thread was lucky.

    Itz not the thing that i am very enthusiastic to overclocking my current cpu. And itz only a last choice for me. And how will it affect my mob if i upgrade my current cpu. in my Manuel it says the mob support up to 8 core fx and fx 8350 is 8 core.

    Actually, the FX 8xxx series are quad core CPUs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgejkSWzvNs

    Seeing how some people have had that board die when paired with an FX 6100 which is 95 watts, I don't think it'll like the FX 8350 which is 125 watts. Please don't put that CPU in your board.

    The MSI 970 GAMING has a 6+2 phase power delivery system which is about on-par with the $135 Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 (my usual recommendation for FX setups). The good news is that the MSI board only costs $91.99 in the US.

    You don't get the 990FX chipset like you would with the Asus board, you get the 970 chipset. However, you still get steady power delivery, great build quality, and a whole host of onboard functions and connectors.

    Yes.

  19. ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 is better than msi 970 gaming right becz asus is priced 10k and msi is priced 8k only 2k differences , i can adjust that

    If you can afford the Asus model, I'd definitely recommend it. That being said, the MSI model is more than enough to run FX 8000 series chips and overclock them (provided a good CPU cooler).

    The Asus model will run the 9000 series chips better than the MSI one will, but they both struggle with these insane 220 watt chips and neither can use them to their full potential. You need an insanely expensive high end board to run those chips properly. Please don't buy the Asus model simply so you can get a 9000 chip. In fact, just don't buy the 9000 series chips. Too much heat.

    1) I don't care what Amazon reviews say. Unless the reviewer can prove that he even knows how to overclock, I'm just going to ignore it. Read professional reviews instead. Only use Amazon reviews to get a sense of how satisfied customers have been with the product.
    2) Yes, your current power supply will support an RX 480.
    3) No. It's a dual core with two extra threads just hastily thrown in there and labeled as 4 core. Not to mention that single core performance is low because the FX lineup has low IPC. If you want performance, you're not going to get it from FX. You said you didn't have the budget to upgrade more than one thing right now, so I was trying to get your current setup ready to accept an upgrade in the future. A higher FX CPU will be a great improvement from where you are now, but won't compete with modern Intel chips.
