After having Far Cry 3 run poorly, I have spent hours reading Top Ten lists, similar posts, comparing parts etc. and still haven't decided. Hopefully someone with a bit more expertise could give an opinion. I can't spend more than 700nzd(575usd) so is it worth upgrading the GPU or putting more effort into other areas for now? Or is something else an issue (I am pretty noob)?
Motherboard : Asus Crosshair V 990FX CPU: AMD FX 8150 3.6 GHZ GPU: Sapphire HD6950 2GB RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3-1600 PSU: Cooler Master sXtreme Power Plus 600W
My current monitor is 1680 x 1050 AOC LCD but should hopefully have a Dell UltraSharp U2412M within the month. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers

In 575 usd you'll get a GTX 680. Which is a beast.
But, best is to play FC3 at a lower setting for now and wait for Nect-Gen cards.
+1 to Sumukh. If you can't wait, I'd say grab a GTX670 (it's only 6% behind the GTX680 on average - you wouldn't be able to see the difference).
