I currently have a PC with
AMD Phenom 8650,3 core processor
4gb ram
Nvidia Geforce 9300gs

Will getting a Phenom 4X 940 (AM2+)
be an effective upgrade for 60$?
I mostly play minecraft at 40~65 fps,and record at 20~25fps,how much more fps will I get?

Or should I get an Radeon HD 6770
Which should get me more FPS(PS: gonna get a new computer on January, CPU Only for part time use)

Minecraft is much more CPU intensive, so I'd go for the Phenom 940, infact get a phenom 955 and overclock it if you can. Then get a GPU.

Don't get a 6770 though they're not very good

But if you're going to buy a new computer in January, I wouldn't bother upgrading?
