    Replace Graphics card or new CPU/Mobo/Memory?

    Those are fair points, but it seems you think that he's buying the A8 6600k when he already has it in his current PC. Lets simplify the question. What would you do if you already have a AMD A8 6600K & a 750Ti.... Buy an Intel Skylake 6600 & keep the 750Ti or Keep the A8 6600K & buy a GTX 970?

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2 GB

    Stupid UK pricing system (again) Currently the cheapest 650Ti Boost (on pre order) is £141 & the a 2GB 660 (non Ti) is £142 If this price remains constant for the first few months there will be no reason to buy it - just get the 660 instead. But hopefully once they come into stock prices...

    AMD Radeon HD 7950 Clock Speeds Revealed

    ^ Obviously this happened with the ATI 9500. Simple unlock via driver & you got yourself a 9700 Pro but £100 cheaper! The ATI 9500 is one of the main reasons why the techPowerup web site & forum exists!!
