Upgrading for Darkfall 2.0! Help

With DF 2.0 near I was looking to upgrade what ive got so this time around i may be able to function during sieges a little better. Was wondering what the best bang for my $ would be on about a 300$ budget to upgrade this computer. I can spend another 200 or so in about 6months if need be. I am mainly considering mobo an CPU due to the fact I had heard several times DF is more CPU demanding them most games rather then GPU but that may just be garbage information. Here is my current set up.

AMD Phenom II x4 955
ATI HD Radeon 5850 1gb gddr5 Core Clock in MHz 850 MHz Memory Clock in MHz 1200 MHz
MoBo Gigabyte GA-MA790GPT-UD3H http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3143#ov
8 gigs of ram
64-bit operating syst

I was wondering if there are even any upgrades worth spending on at this time in that budget range. I havent touched this computer in about 2 years now.

Thanks in advance for any advice. Also I am not opposed to trying Intel if needed.

  1. Anyone?
  2. Okay I have decided to upgrade my mobo and CPU now before launch so i have plenty of time to reformat my computer, install updates, get things running smooth ect. I will purchase a new Video card (most likely the 7950) when the black friday sales hit or christmas sales if its needed.

    I was looking into pairing this mobo/cpu.

    Heres my new question
    is this a large enough of a mobo cpu upgrade to warrant the 300$? Real world gaming do you think it will help me to have settings on high versus what I keep it on now, (no shadows, lower detals). Also will either mobo allow moderate OC'ing? nothing much over say 4.2-4.4ghz.
  3. Am I in the wrong forum, just curious, goin on 6 days now since I first asked and no responses.
