Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series

its not a bad set up but i'm trying to game on the pc (which is NOT a problem - Titanfall high settings) but when I try to record game play or even stream, it stutters and lags... 
Hoping to keep this pc for a while so I might as well start upgrading. 
Thinking about spending a max of $700 on the 2 below:

You can certainly upgrade the video card separately(EDIT: assuming the power supply can handle that card), but the CPU is what is causing the lag when recording.
