My computer is currently as seen in my siggie below.
For $250 or so, would it be best to upgrade to an e84/8500 processor?
Or, would it be better to get a 4870?
I'm looking to increase performance in crysis/warhead.
My worry is that the performance will not make that much of a difference w/ a new gfx card because the proc is crap (even though it's at 3 GHz).

What sort of performance "increase" are u hoping to get in Crysis. I mean u might be thinking unrealistically when it comes to that game. On all max w/ my 9800GX2 i get 60-100 indoors at times (100 is rare) and outside it bombs to 30-60 but still playable for me (just turn the lights off :P)
If u want to buy now....i say get the 4870. That Proc is decent especially for that OC
get the 4870...that proc is not too bad at 3.0ghz...u can even try going a bit higher say 3.4-3.6ghz..it is very doable
