As per my signature below which is my current build I am looking to find some advice on what the optimal updates I could do to take my computer to the next level. I was considering upgrading to a 7970 or 680 for a few weeks now, but I am starting to wonder if that is the most cost effective thing to do. If anyone could advise what my best option would be for an upgrade im all ears. I have about 500-600 dollars of funds right now to play with. I guess I should mention I am a gamer so BF3, Diablo 3, etc.
