I'd have to agree with your friend here and say it isn't that great of an upgrade.

If you want a noticeable upgrade, I would consider getting a GTX 970 or an RX 580.

May I ask what your budget is? I may be able to recommend a good card if I know what you're working with. :)

You really shouldn't be worried about bottlenecking IMO...maybe your friend is more versed in this topic than I, but I'm pretty sure 3.3 GHz is enough for most things.

I'm going to need to sleep now, but I'll try to help you a bit more tomorrow evening or afternoon (PST).
