My System Specs

Default VGA upgrade from GTX 260 first, or CPU+mobo upgrade first?

I am thinking about upgrading from my GTX 260... I run stuff on a 1920x1080 primary and 1920x1200 secondary.

here's the thing though, I am pretty sure that my AM2 5000+ (ocd to 3GHz) is bottlenecking the card (I am trying to game at 1920x1080), and some games such at GTA4 is going to the very edge of the RAM size on the video card at high detail, which all adds up to me wanting to step up.

What I don't know is whether or not if I should jump at HD 5850/5870 single card or I should wait for another generation of cards to come out and focus on moving to DDR3 AM3 architecture. This I would like to hear opinions on if you guys would like to share. Thank you.
