I am running a gaming PC with a Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition (oc to 3.8ghz) and a MSI Twin Frozer II GTX 560TI 1gb card. Being as I am on a budget I am debating which to upgrade.

The processor would be the AMD FX-6300 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or
Video card something like the GTX 660 2gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks!

the FX wont help you much in gaming over what you already have and on the video card I would wait a month. The new Nvidia's coming out soon will drop prices on the current stock.

Looks like it will be a gpu upgrade then. I am looking more and more at the AMD 7870. From all the benchmarks I have seen, it looks like a solid card.
