    Looking for upgrade from R7 260x that is paired with an Athlon x4 760k

    I have a R7 260x paired with an Athlon x4 760k CPU. I am wondering what GPU I should upgrade to since i'm starting to have problems with this one. Also, would it be worth it to upgrade to a x4 860k and get a RX 480 or would that just need me to upgrade my entire system basically.
