Help AMD


I wanted to upgrade my desktop.

It's an HP ENVY h8-1520z Desktop PC

Here are the specs: Processor - AMD FX-8120 eight-core processor [3.1GHz, 8MB L2/8MB L3 Cache]
Memory - 8GB DDR3-1600MHz SDRAM [2 DIMMs]
Hard drive - 1TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive
Graphics card - 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7570 [DVI, HDMI, DP, VGA adapter]

So I need help on fuguring out what i need to upgrade it. It has a 450 watt psu,

I want to get this cpu:AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor

Im wondering if it will make the performance better,or would i also need to get a new graphics card?

So will this be worth it or would i also need to upgrade other components for this to work?

    CPU upgrade=NO! The FX-8150 is barely faster then the 8120.

    However upgrading the GPU to a minimum of a 7850 would be a great choice.
