I built a budget PC a while ago and I am now ready to upgrade it. Currently, I have a A8-3850 on an ASUS mobo (f1a75v-pro) and 8GB DDR3 but no discrete video card. Gigabyte's Windstorm GTX 670 caught my eye but I realize that my cheap cpu might hold my rig back.
Is there anyway to predict if this will happen and avoid wasting some serious cash?
I might be willing to upgrade my CPU as well, but the motherboard is FM1 socket and it doesn't look like there are really high end options.
After spending the day looking at the gtx 660 ti vs 670, I am still unsure about which to pick but I really think that some point I will have to upgrade the cpu/mobo anyhow. I think the lesson from this is that I should spend a little extra rather than regret it later. Thanks for the advice
