Upgrading XFX-HD6670- $200ish budget

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This month

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming. I currently Play Tera Online and with the lowest settings i get about 25fps on 1920x1080. It does use the Unreal Engine so I know it can be a performance hog. Im looking to get 25-40 constant with atleast almost max settings. I also play other various games(LoL, GW2, D3)

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: XFX-HD6670 1gig, 600w Power Supply( Not sure of the maker)

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core 2.30ghz, ECS Black GF8200A(link below), 8gigs of GSkil DDR2 http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=873&CategoryID=1&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=20&LanID=9

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg, Tigerdirect, really any trusted site.

PARTS PREFERENCES: No preference.

OVERCLOCKING:Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 2 21.5" LEDs running at 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: If you feel I need to upgrade other items(I know I need to upgrade, but I don't know that I can right now) let me know. If you think my cpu will bottleneck any of the cards please let me know. Im looking to use some of my tax refund and save a bit for getting the card and maybe other parts if I can find them cheap enough. If you want to do more research for you and find a new mobo/cpu/ram/PS GO FOR IT!:-) Thanks in advanced!

    The biggest thing limiting your fps is your cpu, especially for online multiplayer.


    I suggest you hold off purchasing a new gpu until you get some money together for mobo/cpu/memory.
  2. ^ This , i don't think that it's the 6670 that is killing your TERA and wow performance i had that card before i upgraded a few weeks ago and i was getting a constant 50+ on high settings .

    Cpu before Gpu in this case
  3. Awesome guys I thank you for the responses. I went and did some new-egging and kind of came up with this little list of items. Let me know what you think please.

    Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128519

    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113285

    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231514
    I may go for a 16gig set, but did not think it was a necessity
