    New CPU vs. new GPU

    Jack Banatoni Level 1

      I'm planning to build a new system, but I can't budget it all at once.  Would it be more beneficial to first upgrade to an approved NVIDIA card or to upgrade the CPU?  Originally, I was leaning toward a new CPU (i7-2600k) and use my current ATI card a while longer. After researching more about MPE, though, it looks like the video card may be worth upgrading first.
