Build Recommendation....Processor or Video Card?
Feb 8, 2013, 6:39 PM
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
Video card something like the GTX 660 2gb

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.

yup, processor won't do much of anything but the card would be grand. ...... game at 1600 res and above?

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.
