    ---------------------------

    CPU: AMD Phenom x4 9950
    RAM: DDR2 1066
    Motherboard: ASUS M3A78
    Video Card: ATI 4850

    -----------------------------

    Thinking about upgrading, but only have about 160$ to play around with. IDK if i should go with a Phenom II x6 T1090 or an ATI 6850, which product do you think will give me the best bang for my gaming buck ?

    I went from a 4850 to a 6850 recently myself. You will note a pretty good performance boost with that alone.

    Are you running 32bit or 64bit? 4gb of ram or 8? I'd recommend 64bit Windows 7 with 8gb's of ram.
