@Yar-El. It seems, in their exuberance, my colleagues have forgotten to ask you that most valid question:

what do you use your pc for?

This will give us an idea of the appropiateness of particular hardware for given tasks.

In a gaming context, in our day of GPU>CPU performance ceilings, unless you are a folder, high end video renderer or similar number cruncher, chances are you never come close to using your CPU to its full potential. If you like gaming, and do so at a modest output resolution, a new GPU will give you a performance boost in an area you will actually need and notice it.
