My current CPU is not really cutting it in demanding games so I'm looking to upgrade and am looking for some suggestions.
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.

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