My question is what component out of the following:

1. AMD FX6100
2. sapphire hd 6870 (1gb)

should I upgrade to obtain maximum fps in games.

If I was to upgrade choice 1 It would most likely by an intel core i5 - 3570 k .

My upgraded component if I was to replace the 6870 would be one of these (not sure which yet) :

Can anyone comment on what would give the most significant fps boost and if you think the components that I will replace them with are suitable for my wishes.

Feel free to suggest other components , however note they have to work with a 500w ocz psu which I don't entirely trust.
I also only have the fan that came with my case as well as fans attatched to cpu and gpu etc.

Cheers.

your current CPU is solid enough for gaming

upgrading your GPU would allow for greater FPS especially at higher resolution. Something along the lines of AMD 7850/7870 will run no problem on a 500w PSU especially if yours is the ModXstream 500w
