My current CPU is not really cutting it in demanding games so I'm looking to upgrade and am looking for some suggestions.
Specs:
AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8Ghz
12 Gigs of DDR3 at 1333 Mhz
ATI Radeon Sapphire 5870 2GB
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
MSI 760GM-E51 mATX Motherboard
700 Watt Corsair PSU

I've been looking around and wouldn't mind spending up to around $160-180. I'd prefer to stick with AMD, mainly because I don't feel like dishing out tons of money for an Intel. Also needs to stay a quad core.
-Thanks

Is there a decent performance gap between the 970 and 980 or is it not worth the extra money?
