Hello Everyone, this is my current build; http://pcpartpicker.com/list/mwb2RG , on battlefield 4 ( the most graphically demanding game I have at the moment) I get up to 120fps in medium settings at 1080p, 80fps on high settings at 1080p and  55 to 57fps on ultra at 1080p. I have heard that Bf1 is very cpu heavy and my ideal fps i would like for high settings (I'm gonna stay away from ultra for now) on battlefield 1 when i get the game is 60fps or more in 1080p. Should I get a i5 6500/6600 ( no need for the k variant as I won't be overclocking) or should i swap out my gtx 950 for a rx 480? I am on a tight budget ( willing to spend up to 260 U.S dollars)

I personally have a 950 and it's been great for me so far, for me I'd say a new CPU is the way to go, others may say different. I have a FX-6300 atm, and while that compare to your i3 it's an easy call for me to make if I was in your shoes.

Nothing wrong with 80fps, but if you want to upgrade I'd do a motherboard / cpu / DDR4 memory . Look online for combo deals. Try a i7 6700K processor.

Good luck.

You would see the biggest increase in FPS by upgrading to a RX480 or,  GTX 1060. Especially if your budget is around $250. The i3-6100 you have now is still a great chip but in the future an i5 would definitely be something to consider.
