Then get a GPU. Don't get a 6770 though they're not very good | Report abuse Reply to BuddiLuva BuddiLuva CPUs Expert November 29, 2012 11:27:31 AM But if you're going to buy a new computer in January, I wouldn't bother upgrading? | Report abuse Reply to BuddiLuva Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Is this a good Cpu upgrade? or should just get a gpu> Related ressources: ForumShould I upgrade my CPU or my GPU ?
