My specs now is
cpu: amd athlon2 x2 2.9 ghz
gpu:SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
os: vista 32 bit

Out of these Three which upgrade would give me more fps in games
window index is saying cpu is the weaker hardware but not by much. Something in my head is telling me to go with gpu. So what would you all go with? I only have enough money for one item right now.

I would start with the video card myself. games are more dependent on the gpu than the cpu, and will give you something you can see the difference, you wouldn't see a cpu upgrade, should have 4gig of memory at least

The video card. However the CPU is kind of weaksauce too, and my guess is if you go beyond say a Radeon HD 7770 or GeForce GTX 650, any more and you won't see any improvement.

buying a little better card would even out when you upgrade the cpu. this one comes with fc3 and blood dragon. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150598

a better card, and comes with fc3, blood dragon, bioshock, and tomb raider http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150609 this card is close to the same price as a 650.

Thank You didnt think anybody would look up hardware for me.yeah you got it right those video card is in my price range didnt want to spend more then 250 on any hardware right now and I am amd fan even though they might not be the fastest. And was thinking of one of the 7800. Plus to make a decent enough upgrade on cpu I will have to upgrade motherboard to.
