    Help me decide on a new CPU for my GTX 680SC

    I have a Phenom II x4 970, a GTX 680SC, and a ASUS m4A87TD motherboard.

    I'm looking to upgrade my CPU because i'm getting bottlenecked like a mofo

    which CPU should I get?

    AMD FX-8150
    I5-2500k

    Those are the two i'm looking at right now.

    I'm open to all suggestions.


    EDIT: completely forgot that I would have to replace my MB. I'm just going to try and overclock my CPU in the meantime untill I get the extra money to upgrade both of them.

    I don't think you're getting bottlenecked by that CPU. It's still going strong.

    Anyway, if you decide to drop that AM3+ platform and get a new one, go for Intel Z77.
