    Upgrade Suggestions

    Current Build:
    AMD Fx 8350 8-core ~4GHz
    8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866
    MSI GTX 970 2GB Ram
    Gigabyte 970A-D3P Motherboard
    1TB HDD
    250GB SSD

    Any suggestions on upgrades without breaking the bank?
    I believe my GPU is pretty good already, i feel like my processor is fucking over my fps sometimes...maybe i should get an I7?

    Your CPU is not in anyway fucking over your FPS, check utilizations of your GPU when on a game, I guarantee you there will be no bottleneck since I have literally almost the exact same setup as you (Same ram, GPU and CPU). Also you definitely do not need an i7 not to mention that would need you to buy another motherboard so it's probably best to stick with an AMD CPU if you do want to upgrade that.

    Also are you sure that is accurate because I don't think you can get a 970 with 2GB of memory.
