Currently I have a computer with a Quad core Fx-4100 processor, a Radeon HD 6450 card, 8GB of RAM and a 480W power supply. I'm planning to upgrade to a Radeon HD 7850 2GB Saphirre to play high graphics games like BF3 and Crysis. Is this worth the money or is my processer holding me back? Should I Upgrade my Processor or my Graphics card. If so any suggestions? Also need to know if i need a better PSU.

Hi :) 

Your GPU.... if you later upgrade your cpu/mobo you can take the card with you...

All the best Brett :)

I agree the 6450 seems to be what would really be holding you back. The FX-4100 doesn't seem to be the greatest but i think it should suffice where the 6450 certainly won't.

get the gfx card, the 6450 is REAlly slow in comparison.. That cpu is not horrible, but not great. Overclock the cpu if you know how, they overclock well.
