So my processor upgrade is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And my choices for a new gpu are: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I really like both cards but am torn between them. Just need a little help choosing, thats all.
