Default Expert Advice.....

I need for you guys to offer me some insight. What do you lot think? You guys can refer to the system specs (signature) I currently have

What would give me more bang on the buck upgrade from a purely gaming point of view.

I game with 1920 by 1200 and with all eye candy enabled (as much as I can) including AA (4X a min or High Quality FXAA) and AF on. EYE CANDY ***** I be!

I now play exclusively, Age of Conan, Secret World (beta), Star Wars TOR and some Skyrim
Performance for me on AoC/Secret World/Skyrim are OK but can come down to teen levels.

Not interested in BF3 or any FPS game (i suck at those)

With that in mind, and with budget for one or the other, would it be better if upgrade to;

1) Ivy bridge CPU (the 4 core overclockable one) upgrade (of course with mobo + DDR3 RAM)


2) Kepler or 7970 and stay with current CPU set up


3) Stop gaming and spend more time with girlie?
