im kinda lost and looking for some techy help... i have an Asus F2A85-M motherboard and would like to know what proccesor my board can actually upgrade to? any help out there?
 
What? .. and no psu? no hdd/ssd? :)

Anyway - I'd upgrade GPU first and see, how that goes. If graphics quality settings you're after, then gpu upgrade will provide that.
CPU will hold down your system - that's for sure. But - to what extent?
You'll have to check and see, how that upgraded GPU performs in your system.

If performance still is not satisfactory, then start saving for a new cpu/motherboard/ram.
BTW - get SSD for your system, if you don't have one already.

darn, i wasnt hoping to drop alot of cash just yet, maybe a few hundred. I was kinda hoping there was an upgrade option. I use this computer mainly for gaming and it has been adequate so far. I was going to upgrade my GPU to a 1060 ti and try to squeeze some more power from a stronger core if one was available. I been playin Player Uknowns Battlegrounds and wanted to get a little better quality..... i know its not an optimized game yet, but i know it comes down to GPU and CPU

what i would do is wait for ryzan apu and then go with mb/ram/cpu swap. amd is going to keep the a4 mb for a bit not like intel thta keeps changing pins on there entry level cpu. i would then wait for nvidia next gpu next year.
