currently i have a gaming rig with a gtx 560, an amd phenom ii x4 840 3.2ghz proc, and 8 gigs of ram. i am looking to upgrade to play games like borderlands 2 and dishonored. im sure my rig can handle both games currently but should i upgrade my cpu or video card? which upgrade would increase my performance the most? thanks in advance for responses.
the upgrades im thinking is for the gpu ill upgrade to a 2gb gtx 660, and for the cpu ill upgrade to an intel 3570k. i know my cpu is lacking in the gaming department. so you really think id get more benefit from upgrading the gpu instead of the cpu?
It's not the best cpu for gaming but still i would first go for the better gpu and see what that does, you can always upgrade the cpu if your not satisfied, but you need a better gpu anyway. GTX660 sounds lovely.
i would prefer a good stock overclock because im not really into overclocking right now, though i might in the future. One question, why is the 7870 better than the superclocked 660? ive always bought nvidia cards.
