I want to upgrade my system to improve FPS for gaming (mainly Flightsim X). I can’t afford a full upgrade, so it’s either a new motherboard/CPU or a new graphics card. Looking at my current system, would I benefit more from a new card, keeping my current CPU/motherboard, or would it be better to do the reverse? If I upgrade my card, I don’t mind paying a bit extra so I can keep it and upgrade my CPU/motherboard at a later date.
