Current system specs:
Athlon x4 880k
rx 460
16gb ram @1600mhz
msi a68h-e33 v2
600w psu (I know it's overkill)
Would I see any noticeable difference in performance if I went from a 460 to a 470? Secondly, because of the cpu bottleneck, would it even be worth it?
Budget of $180

I will keep this in mind, but I am curious.
Do you think It will be better if I saved for something like this?

This config saves on ram, and is generally cheaper, and should sacrifice too much performance compared to the one you put together

I play For Honor, Just Cause 3, Battlefield 1, CS:GO, and Overwatch
They all run fine as is, but at minimum settings (other than csgo and overwatch which run at high)
I just want an extra little step up in performance, so I think going for the i5 4440 would be good, or saving for an r3 ryzen chip if the mobo prices are ~$50 for the a350 chipset.
I'll just have to wait and see I guess, but thanks for your help :)
