I am thinking about upgrading my Gaming Computer sometime in June... right now I have an Athlon II x3 455 and a Radeon HD 6870. I think my CPU is starting to get a little out dated, but what do you think? Should I upgrade my CPU? If so what CPU should I get?
Tbh, there isnt much point in buying a new MoBo. Your current one can still support one more upgrade before having to change due to being outdated.
The FX 8 series would do wonders and you could later buy a new GPU which you can then carry onto your next rig.
The FX-81xx is terrible for games! It won't be much of an upgrade form his current CPU as the performance per clock is better on the AII and most games won't use more than 4 cores! The 2500k is the way to go if you are spending that much money. The FX-81xx CPUs are for multitasking, not gaming.
