Upgrading either my CPU or graphics card. Help me choose!

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy either a new graphics card or a new CPU mostly to improve gaming performance.

I can currently play most games and maintain an average 30FPS at medium to mixed medium and high settings at 1280 x 720 resolution.

I can't run at a higher resolution due to the fact that my TV only supports up to 720p resolution.

I also currently can't afford to upgrade both my CPU and my graphics card at the same time, so I have to choose one or the other.

I either want to upgrade my CPU to an AMD FX-8350 4GHz eight-core CPU ($225 after tax), or upgrade my graphics card to a Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB GDDR5 card ($290 after tax, includes Tomb Raider 2013, BioShock Infinite, and FarCry 3: Blood Dragon)

After looking at my desktop's current hardware below, which upgrade would give me better gaming performance overall?

My desktop's current hardware specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Quad-Core CPU (not overclocked, don't plan on overclocking it)
ASUS AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 graphics card (not overclocked)
4GB (2 x 2GB) G.SKILL Ripjaws X-Series DDR3 1333MHz RAM

Upgrade the card to something like a 7850/7870, but the CPU should be upgraded too.

The reason why I'm choosing the HD 7870 XT is because it's basically a cut down (but still very powerful) 7900 series graphics chip. It's basically a 7900 series card, but with a little less shaders, and the reviews and benchmarks show that the card definitely beats the regular 7800 series graphics cards in basically every way.

With that being said, if I do upgrade my graphics card, will my current CPU (X4 965 BE) bottleneck the new graphics card (7870 XT)?

with decent OC on that CPU, I believe upgrade card would be great
and OC'd CPU would not bottleneck the whole performance too much

I should also mention that I already own Tomb Raider 2013, so I could easily sell the Tomb Raider voucher for $40-$50, bringing the overall price of the graphics card down the about $240 after everything is said and done.

I won't overclock my CPU, so if I don't overclock my CPU, will it bottleneck the performance of the 7870 XT?

Okay, so how badly will my CPU bottleneck the 7870 XT? Will it bottleneck it badly enough that I won't notice a performance gain from my HD 6770, or...?

What's your motherboard?

I would go 7870 XT + Hyper 212 Evo here.
