What should I upgrade my amd fx 4300 @3.8ghz or my pny 750ti?

Hey guys, I've been having problems in some of the games I play
I mostly play csgo h1z1 and overwatch, I was either going to upgrade to an i5- 4460 or either get a 1050ti/1060 graphics card(either of the two cards) my budget is about 250$
I've been having more frame drops and lower fps than usual so I was thinking it was time for an upgrade. I'm going to get a new motherboard as well for the i5-4460.
If you guys have anymore suggestions on what I should upgrade to please let me know
Thanks for the help everybody!

  1. I would take a look at the RX 470 4GB, it is an excellent price/performance card and in your budget range. Much stronger than the 1050 Ti and close enough the 1060 3GB (i wouldn't use a 3GB card in 2017 anyway). Other than that your build is pretty balanced meaning upgrading one thing will leave the other bottlenecking in most situations but the better GPU would do more for your performance than a new CPU. Additionally, the Ryzen 5 CPU lineup is coming out very soon and will add good competition and selection to the market so look at upgrading later this year if you can. Hope this helps :)

    According to this the RX 470 can run Overwatch at 1440p Ultra ~80 FPS. Unsure about H151 but CSGO would be no issue at all.

  2. You say fps is not as high as it used to be, and you are getting more frame drops than before. So are you saying performance was good before? If so, have you considered that maybe your computer has some kind of issue besides the videocard?

    What resolution are you running? What kind of framerate were you getting? How much system ram do you have?

    Should I just upgrade straight to a rx480 8gb asus rog stirx or should I just get an Rx 470( I have the money or the 480 so idk if I should just get that or just stick to the 470)

    You most certainly could if you have the money it will be a strong card and last you longer than the RX 470 however, remember your will be very much holding it back in most games for now. If you do get it i suggest upgrading the CPU within the year if you can (Maybe Ryzen 5 will help this with better competition and Intel price drops). If you stick with the 470 it does mean you will have more money to save for a CPU upgrade tho if you feel like saving. The choice is up to you. a RX 480 8GB ROG Strix should max out most games at 1080p 60 FPS really well. It does look damn good too ;)
