It's only been about a year since I got this computer, although I may get a 7870 over my 6870 I'm thinking about a whole new computer. My CPU is a AMD FX 8120 @3.3GHz and when should I upgrade to where I see a major performance increase?

can you overclock?
Tom's recommends don't upgrade unless the new parts are 3 tiers higher than the current parts. Check the hierarchy charts.
