Hi there, I am in the process of deciding what to upgrade for my system. I use my comp mainly for gaming specifically BF3. Here are my current specs

CPU-Core 2 Quad Q6600
Mobo- Intel DG965WH
GPU- Sapphire Radeon HD 4890
PSU- Corsair 750 Watt
Ram- 4gb corsair ddr2

Now of those components, Which should be the first to upgrade to improve FPS and bf3 preformance? Links and suggestions would be awesome! Thanks for all the help

and an overclock fo the Q6600 to around 3.5ghz.

Do you have a budget?

My mobo is unable to OC my cpu unfortantly. My budget is hopefully under 200$

If you have a Microcenter nearby, the 965 and mobo is $89, so you could get a 7770. If you don't, get a 7850.
