When I went from an Nvidia 460 to a GTX 670, I really didn't see a huge improvement in performance or fidelity.

Wow I did, what is your cpu? Before/after? Again I say both are about equally important right now.

I upgraded CPUs at the same time, from a 2.4 Core Duo to a 3.6 Core i5 (Ivy Bridge) with new a motherboard and went from 4 to 8 GB of RAM. A couple months after that I put in an SSD, and THAT'S where I really saw a performance increase, obviously in startup/load times. XBox and Sony could really add perf to their consoles by throwing in a modest 16-24 GB of SSD in a hybrid hard drive.
