    The 920 was a solid processor but I agree with Gehn. You're probably going to be holding back any decent new video card you get due to CPU/MOBO. I'd recommend saving until you can replace all the parts. Or buy the video card now but plan to replace the rest later.

    I should be asking you that
    No evil here

    I know that the CPU would be the bottleneck for the video card. I'm used to upgrading piece by piece though, and I was just noticing that games like to stutter a bit with my GTX285 =/

    Gumby, I don't have the liquid capital to spend on an R9 290. Probably pushing it when I think of a GTX770 for 359.99, but it's still desirable. I'll just sit on my $100 amazon gift card for a bit for a new build then if you guys think that I should upgrade all at once.
