I haven't purchased anything yet but my budget went up currently so I am wondering whether I should upgrade the Intel Celeron G530 Sandy Bridge to an Intel Pentium G620 Sandy bridge OR whether if I should keep the Intel Celeron G530 and upgrade the 6670. I will be playing at 1920x1080 so im wondering which is more important

For gaming at 1080p go with more graphic muscle. HD 7750 at least. Keep the Celeron for now, it will let you play games - the Pentium isn't much better, you really want at least an i3 for gaming, so plan on upgrading that next.

Thanks, are you sure the Celeron won't bottleneck the HD 7750? Is there anything cheaper then the 7750?

It will bottleneck it a little, but you won't notice. The only card worth getting that's cheaper than the HD 7750 is the HD 6670 with GDDR5. But the HD 7750 is 70% better for $10 more.

The 6670 doesn't come with a VGA or DVI cable, nor does the 7750. Is it the monitor that comes with that, I don't remember.
