I was thinking about upgrading some hardware on my gaming computer I've been working on for a year now, and im trying to get some input on what piece of hardware would give the biggest performance increase in gaming for around 100-200$. Most of the games i throw at it can run smoothly but some games like crysis i feel like theres a bottleneck somewhere because it only runs around 40fps avg which is fine but it feels really choppy and not smooth.
CPU: AMD phenom x4 965
GPU: MSI Twin 560 Ti
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHZ
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-650TX
HDD: WD Caviar Green 1.5 TB
OS:Windows 7 Home 64bit
I play at 1920x1080 resolution.

hmm well 100-200 is a really tight budget... have you thought about getting a new proccessor? maybe look into the fx-8150 or fx-4170
Well im not really looking to redo the whole computer and i dont want to buy a upgrade that will break my bank. I was just looking for a little input on what they think the biggest increase in performance would be from the parts i already have. A SSD a new better HDD a new cpu. I just put the price there so people have a general idea.
