Have you considered a apu this is 380 http://pcpartpicker.com/b/zCR good cause quad core unlocked CPU if the onboard gou equivalent to a and 6670 isnt enough you could save up later for a better gpu

If you upped your budget to 500 wish I would recommend I would get a pentium 860 and a AMD 7850 or a AMD 7870 gtx 660 if you cab find them for under 190

Hi. I think spending the money to upgrade your current PC is a better idea if possible. If not, I suggest saving up more money first.

Also, what games are not good enough for the 6670
( I'm Assuming BF3, which I don't care about too much, but just checking)
