Hi,

Have preordered Shadows of Mordor, which I'm certain I'll be able to run at least on minimum settings (current specs below). I'm thinking of getting a new GPU anyway (probably SAPPHIRE AMD R9 280 Graphics Card (3GB, DDR5), but was just wondering if I ought to invest in a new CPU as well (or instead).

Basically, is there any point doing one without the other?

I'd be grateful for any constructive advice :)

Specs: Processor AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor, Video Card AMD Radeon R7 200 Series, Ram 8GB
