i recently just got my first gaming pc but i am already ready to upgrade. i am thinking i just need to upgrade my cpu and graphics cards. My current specs are:

amd fx 6100 six core 3.30 ghz
10 gigs ram
gtx 550 ti 2gb
1.5 TB hard drive

any input on better cpu's and a better gpu would be greatly appreciated. thanks

wouldn't worry about the cpu. got 6 cores........ no upgrade can beat that unless you do a ground up........... in 2-3 years or whatever.

the gpu isn't great........ what is your monitor and resolution and what software ( specifically ) do you run ?
