Alright thanks heaps for the help guys.

I've been looking into what a new mainboard, cpu, graphics card will cost and i might just save a bit more and go the whole lot.

I already have an SSD thanks!

You dont need a new cpu, look for a used 5970...
They can be found for 200$

Would it be worth getting a newer AMD cpu for this system or just bin the AMD and go for an i5 ?

Amd Bulldozer FX-4170 Am3+ 4.2ghz Quadcore for example?

don't make that mistake. your mobo is meant for oc'ing. not sure what cpu cooler you have but i've seen 1055 go past 4GHz. just get a 7850 - problem solved. it should tide you over for at least 2 years.

for eyeinfinity, save up and get a 7950.

Thanks for the help.

I have the H80 cpu cooler. I've had a little play with overclocking but not heaps. i've had the cpu upto 3.4 before but when it comes to changing voltages and what not i get a little lost.

I think I will end up picking up a 7950, seems like a solid card for the $$.
