specs: phenom ii 945, 6gb ram, hd 5850 1gb, m4a77td pro, potato of a hard drive, two potatos in raid0

i do most of my gaming at 1920x1080 and haven't had any real issues, but i mostly play grand strategy now rather than new crap. i'm thinking i'll probably have issues with the new x game and probably stuff within the next couple years.

don't really want to spend more than $300 though.. was thinking either a 7970 boost or a 760 and just chugging it out with my potato of a cpu.

I'd grab one of the many on sale 7970's floating around. More performance for the money vs. a 760. It should work fine with your CPU and still be a big improvement but you should probably look into upgrading that at some point.

You're pretty much screwed for a CPU upgrade without getting a new mobo.

Good luck getting a decent socket AM3 CPU.
