Right, I have a budget of £300-£400 and I am looking to upgrade My PC I got last year. I am debating weather to go for A knew GPU like the GTX 660ti /670/Ati Radeon 7950/Ati Radeon 7970 or Weather it is worth getting a new CPU and mobo (Intel i7 3770k/3820 (Iremember someone saying that the next gen intel CPUs are moving to sandybridge-E So it will make sense to go for the 3820)). I am currently using an AMD FX 4100 at stock speed with and Ati Radeon 6670 at stock speed. I plan to play games like BF3, Farcry 3 and other fps titles like that. I am completely clueless because some people are saying go for a GPU but others are saying that I would get a huge bottleneck with my current specs that it will be more worth getting a complete overhaul of the system. Cheers in advance Ohh yeah and I am planning on doing some editing HD vids and 3D modeling
Why choose one or the other? Compromise and get a decent bump for both CPU and GPU power. (Assuming your mobo will take the FX-6300)
No point in getting a nice new i7 and using a 6670 lol Id say get a 79xx series since there price isnt much more than a 7870. Also u could do the cpu as amd is releaseing 8xxx series later this year i believe.
