Hello all,

 

I'm on a quite limited budget (for now) but I'd like to play \\mostly singleplayer, so (I guess) usually less CPU intensive\\ games

 

I'm not sure whether it would be more beneficial to replace my FX-6300 (that I OC'd to 4.4 Ghz) with an i5 4690k

or 

my 2GB GTX 770 for a GTX 1070 (as far as I know this would be a huge bottleneck but I still wonder if it would be better to replace the graphics card  than replace the processor)

 

Which one of these two options would you guys chose if you had to?

 

Thanks in advance!

Got my reasons as of why I'm sticking to NVIDIA but I don't want to go the typical AMD vs NVIDIA offtopic way, I'd just like to know which of those options should I chose.
