Would it be cost efficient to upgrade?

Is upgrading a GTX 460 worth it?

Your average 250-300$ GTX 760 is barely faster than a 3 years old GTX 460. (5006 vs 2665) benchmarks.

So i was wondering, should i upgrade now or wait another year for the price to hit 150$?

I know for a fact I'm gonna switch my AMD Athlon X4 640 for a AMD FX-8320.
150$ for a CPU 233% faster? Yes please.

i agree with your cpu choice thats pretty good.
Also i dont think you will need to upgrade your gpu as long as it can play all the games that you play.

As long as you can play your games woithout being to ugly/laggy, I would wait and when the first games run really bad either get a card that's now new for cheaper or buy the newer generation

I guess I'll wait a year.
All the games i play still run at 80-120fps in 1680x1050 at max settings.

However, my CPU is really starting to take a beating and so is my HDD.
I might spend money on a SSD instead of a GPU, the capacity and price are much better than what they used to be.
200$ for a 250GB SSD seems "fair".

Yes ssds rock :D got 2 Samsung 840 evo 250gb in raid0, even before I bought the second one everything was blazing fast and raid0 made it even faster (and I actually got the two 250gb ssd for less then one 500gb, but that was just luck)
