I'd be willing to spend the amount it would take for me to be running at say medium, 1080p, good framerates. Nothing over the top, as I'm not a ultra hardcore gamer :/
Any ideas what I should get? I was thinking to not go the FX-**** route as I heard Bulldozer has proven to be a failure almost.
Alternatively you can get a 1090T + GTX 460 for ~$300.
You could also try to overclock your processor and/or unlock the cache.
