I'd get a nice solid GPU and call it a day... If your not into boasting about FPS, then there really is no need to upgrade your CPU yet... I'd say go for a 1900XT(X) maybe even a PRO...

Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

maybe even...

^ bottleneck??

what he has left is a 4200+ single core.... but if he gets it near 2.8ghz (600mhz more) it wouldn't bottleneck the x1950xt or xtx... but for the gts.... i'd expect some bottleneck issues
