I want to upgrade to a 5850 or 5870, but I'm unsure if my current cpu (Phenom II 720 unlocked x4 @ 3.2) will bottleneck my system. I was reading a FFXIV website when I found ingame benchmark scores for gpu/cpu configurations - see below (this is what made me think I will be bottlenecked).
I could upgrade to a Phenom II 965, but all I will be getting is a few more mhz (as far as I know), will that even help, or worth throwing out my current gpu?
Processor: Phenom II X3 BE 720 - Unlocked x4 @ 3.2 ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P
Graphics: IceQ 1gb 4870
