currently i have :
AMD fx6100
EVGA gtx 550 ti
asus m5A78l/usb3
8gb corsair vengence ram

i want to get a new mobo cpu and gpu but currently i dont have enough money to buy the:

AsRock Z77 Pro4 Motherboard
Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K
MSI HD 7850 Twin Frozr AMD Graphics Card (2GB, PCI-E 3.0 x16)

so should i get the new mobo and cpu and save up for the gpu or should i get the gpu and save for the cpu and mobo ?

It really depends on what you r gonna use it for in the mean time, if you play games a lot, upgrade the GPU first, but if you get the performance you r okay with for now, do the CPU-Mobo, cuz by the time you save up for the GPU there may be something out that is better and cheaper than what is currently available. The CPU and Mobo will be good for ages.

If it was me, I'd do the CPU and Mobo now, like i said by the time you get to the GPU there will be newer stuff on the market and you'll get more for less with the previous gen stuff. You could SLI the 550s, but you'll still want to upgrade in the near future

If you do get the 550ti from your friend, you'll still have to buy the bridge, which will run you 10-15 bucks
