Hi guys I'm actually a bit short of money and i got two options:

upgrade my system from 965@3.8ghz to 3570k without oc and moderate oc in heavy games

upgrade my 6950 2gb to 7950 and buy a SSD

All i do is gaming and homework's from college and sometimes got a bit of stuttering in dota 2, my fav game and notice the same when some Internet pages are opened.

My current specs:

Phenom 965be@3.8ghz
Asus M4A88T-V
Crucial ballistix tracer red 2x2gb 1600mhz
Samsung F3 1tb
X-FI Xtremegamer Fatal1ty Champion
Samsung 226BW 1680x1050
XFX 6950 2gb, bought on 2010 so it can be flashed to 6970

For your resolution you will most likely gain more from the CPU upgrade. I personally would though just upgrade to a SSD, with your budget you can easily get a 240-256GB one.

Nuh-uh. This SSD nonsense is just nonsense. Get EBoostr or something.

Upgrade your CPU. Your GPU is killer.
