Hey guys, I'm thinking of upgrading some of my computer and want to know your thoughts. What is worth upgrading the most out of my cpu or graphics card?

I have a Amd FX4100 and a Amd 7770HD graphics card. I'm a gamer who is currently playing bf3, far cry 3 and crysis 3. I have my own YouTube channel and record footage too. All I want really is to get a constant 60fps while recording. Doesn't have to be on the highest settings, as I run most games on low when playing multiplayer so I can get the most frames.

Any advice would be great thanks

Jon

I would get a better video card. If you OC that CPU+ the new card, you should manage higher framrates. But I don't know of any video cap software that will give you solid 60 fps while recording.

Ok mate, I record my footage at 30 frames but just want to still be playing at 60+ frames. I use dxtory for recording which found doesn't reduce my frames as much as other software.

I don't want to spend anymore than 300 on a graphics card. What do you recommend?

The 7950 would be a decent upgrade for that price.
