    Talking GPU Buying

    My PC config is

    Pro:Core i3-530

    MB:Intel DH55TC

    Ram:4GB 1333

    PSU:Generic 500 Watt

    I am thinking about buying a gpu for around 55K(Choice is R9 290X or GTX 780).PSU will be Corsair 650W bronze.Is it necessary to upgrade the MB and PRO ? Will the GPU bottleneck the PRO ? Will i get the nearly same FPS if i buy faster processor and slower GPU ?

    I think u better upgrade the CPU and mobo before getting a high end GPU
    If I am not mistaken your current motherboard is for 1st gen Core i series processors so it would be hard to find a first gen i5 so better invest in something new that suits your budget

    You have to upgrade to a i5 or it will bottleneck. Either its 1st/2nd or 3rd/4th whatever. 1st/2nd hand 1st gen processor of i5 is now rare. so you better buy a brand new 4th gen i5 and a new Mobo.

    Sell your current Processor, mobo.

    Core i5 4570 = 16k
    Mobo Gigabyte H81 = 5.5k
    GPU Sapphire R9 280X = 30k

    Total = 51.5k

    u have to change whole setup proc wont support mobo
    for i5
    if budget is a concern .
    look into amd fx piledrivers .................. if u dont oc much a low budget mobo with decent cpu (lets say fx6300+Msi/Asrock 760/880) should leave u enough money for a very good gpu.......... (consider a low budget cpu cooler though later on )
