Alright , here's my specs

Motherboard: Jetway TA55M-L FM1 Pci-e x16
Ram 8gb ddr3
Cpu AMD A6 3670k (i don't want the integrated dual graphics)
PSU 500watt

I have HD 7850, but guys said that it will bottleneck CPU, so im going to buy the CPU (and mobo too, because my current mobo 's socket is FM1)

I would love to run Gta 4 with ultra setting at 1680x1050 (if possible)
Or crysis 3 with High ( ultra is not necessary)

Any help would be really really appreciated...

It would be helpful if you gave us a budget

What do you guys think about Phenom ii x4 965 BE? and ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ mobo?

A guy said that My PSU isnt enough, atleast 550w is required. Is that true?

my budget is $200

For that budget old phenom will serve u fine.....

if your PSU is quality 500w, then no need to change....

for safety, what the type/model/brand your PSU ?...
