Upgrading my rig which is posted below. I am thinking of spending about 300-400 dollars on upgrades. Now I have basically narrowed my options down to GPU and CPU. Which would you guys suggest out of the two, and please let me know why. (Which would overall give more performance boost.
This rig is strictly for gaming. ^_~ ( BF3, Tera, GW2, any other MMO, FPS, or RPGs in the future)
You can't "future proof" ANY build. Also, games don't use as much CPU as GPU... your GPU would still be bottlenecked with the CPU you have. Also, all sockets are only available for about two years (tick and a tock). You won't be able to put Haswell in. Anyway, I'd suggest a GPU upgrade.
