  1. You need to get both new VGA and CPU ( possibly a new motherboard, too ), to play new titles at 1080p fluently. Getting just a new graphic card only won't solve your problems in CPU-intensive games.

    actually the c2d e8400 is still very capable of playing games. if you were to upgrade only one component, then your gpu needs to go. a 650ti boost will serve you well but don't expect to play on ultra - more along the lines of 1080p medium. i'd tell you one thing though; don't expect your c2d to last for long - you should plan ahead on overhauling your rig asap.

    Yes, it will solve problems with low FPS in a lot of games. But as nokiddingboss replied, you should think of getting a new CPU soon, too.
