I recently upgraded my gpu to a Sapphire 6950 2gb reference model, and my old CPU is holding back performance.
My specs are:
Sapphire 6950 2gb Reference Model
Gigabyte GA-MA780G-UD3H (AM2+)
Phenom 9750 x4, 2.4Ghz
Cooler Master GX650W PSU
Hyper 212 Plus
What would be the best upgrade in terms of performance/$? I think that simply picking up a 955 would be the cheapest way to get a boost, then maybe upgrading to Ivy Bridge or Piledriver in a year or two.
