How much would you be able to save for? I'd aim for a 660 max considering your CPU is a bit -ahem- on the lower end of the spectrum. crossifred 7770s can do quite well if crossfire is supported by the games you play. you should think about upgrading to an 8320/6300 as well.

You can always consider AMD's new APU's. Apparently, they are quite good (I haven't gotten any specs). Plus, there is always a chance to upgrade the GPU later. Migh be a decent idea to do a bit of a refresh to your system. An APU would handle the older CPU problem you have and be a GPU for the time being. Just another option to connsider. :P

One day, you will have to do it anyway. Might as well do it now.

Don't bother about the APUs until they release the Athlon versions without the gpu bits. If you did go for an apu it'd still be an upgrade in the CPU department as they actually have better single core performance than most FX cpus!
