Should I upgrade my cpu to an i7, or should I try to get a new graphics card? My budget is $350.
I'd say neither as well. You're GPU is fine but for the prices of used Intel CPUs you might as well start thinking about a platform update and keeping the GPU
weirdly, I'm going to say none.
What's the motivation for upgrading? Do you have a specific slowdown issue (gaming fps, or move to higher resolution, or whatever), or are you just looking for "better"?
Either way, I suspect you aren't going to get much relief from a CPU upgrade. You'll probably have to replace at least mobo and CPU, and possibly memory depending on what you have. If you're at 8 GB memory and running short, put your money there. If you have no SSD, get one. If you're upgrading resolution to 1440p, you'll want to change out the GPU.
