What to upgrade first...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I can decide what i should upgrade first or what to upgrade into... i think right now either my cpu/video card is the bottle neck.

Any suggestions?

The only think I see in your sig rig holding you back is the graphics card in there. Everything else looks good.
