done a few over time but as MWO gets closer and closer I want to make my experience with MWO epic (cause more detail of stuff blowing up is always great! smoothness matters aswell.. which is why i'm stuck)
i'll start with current specs (using MWOs profiler rofl)

some things not mentioned is that the Motherboard is a Biostar TA990fxe (http://www.newegg.co...biostar%20990fx)
My memory (to be more specific) is 8GB gskill 1333 (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231426)
reading some other posts about upgrades got me thinking.. i'm half stuck between getting a processor, FX8120 or just the FX4100 or getting say a.. radeon 7970.. or something along those lines..
I've been thinking about the 8120 for a while but I keep hearing horror stories every now and then about it just being a fail processor.. if anyone has had some experience with them for some feed back with their "bulldozer" platform the video cards and CPUs make then that would be great aswell.. I currently have a phenom II x4 (as stated in the specs) and that line of CPUs have been great.. I wouldn't mind upgrading to another phenom processor if someone can show me some good ones.
I prefer AMD just because of price/performance ratios but if theres any honest selling point to a nvidia card (other than thats what MWO is using for their engine lol)
i've also been thinking about just getting like 3 monitors to replace my single LG 19 inch "TV" and run them in eyefinity with my 2 6770s. But I haven't gotten a chance to use eyefinty either so some feedback on that would be great aswell.
at the time of this post they're 129.99 but have been fluxing to about 149.99 every now and then.
