Those aren't cards those are CPUs.

 

You want to upgrade from an A4 to an A4?

 

That's like swapping Ford Focuses with your cousin because you want the red one. At best, you'll get an equivalent upgrade to changing to a sport muffler. 2 horsepower. Is that going to make a difference? No.

A significant upgrade from what you have would be an A10. And I don't know if your mobo would support that because you haven't given us any details about your system.

 

A more significant upgrade would be a whole new system based on an AMD FX 6300 and an R9 270X GPU.
