    3 is the only one worth having and yes on the GPU. I would go minimum FX8320 for upgrade the FX6300 may be disappointing coming from the 965BE.
  2. 965 is enough cpu for a 270x but your not going to get ultra of it like your thinking.
  3. Thinking about it you should really just get the best AMD gpu you can afford and hold out for a i5. 290 would be great but I doubt you would be disappointed with a 280x.
