Hi guys! I decided instead of buying a PS4 i'd spend a bit extra and upgrade my more-often used PC.
My current specs are:
Nvidia GTX 560 Ti (not overclocked)
AMD Phenom X6 1090t @3.20GHz


What I was thinking:
Nvidia GTX 760
Intel Core i5-3570K

would this be worthwhile to upgrade for the money? I'm not the brightest with PC's :(.

Unfortunately to get those, it would cost more than a PS4. The CPU and Motherboard would cost around 300, and the GPU is around 250-280.

You should get a 4670k. The price difference from a 3570k is almost nothing and it's newer tech (less power usage too.)
