The best place to find computer parts would be from newegg or tigerdirect. As for gaming a new graphics card is what you need to increase gaming performance. To run most games at max settings its better to build an entire computer from scratch which can be 800 at least. But a graphics card upgrade is the next best thing. 200 would be cutting it close for any upgrades.

ty for answering me i do appreciate it. My question is like with my GPU what should i look for like brand and things that will be good but not expensive to buy to replace the one i have? same with the other things i have that could be replaced with something better. i have no idea how to build a computer lol so its simple and easier for me to just buy the parts i need :p .
so far i think i need this didnt know if this would help but found it on amazon its Intel Core-i5 3350P Quad-Core Processor 3.1 Ghz 6 MB Cache LGA 1155 - BX80637i53350P. now with the graphics card what brand is good but not expensive ?

To upgrade anything besides the graphics card you would probably need a new motherboard. For graphics cards you have to pick amd or Nvidia. Im not going into whats better here. But with brands EVGA for nvidia as well as asus is good. And amd Sapphire or HIS is good too. For the specific models the amd 7750 is a good cheap card, or the EVGA 650 ti boost superclocked.

With motherboards that depends an what processor you want to use. They have specific socket sizes that determine which board to get. Once you know what processor you want then you decide which board. You are going to have to get a new processor to get a new board because a board that fits the cpu you have wouldnt be an upgrade. And im looking to upgrade to that graphics card soon too.

Yeah getting it from amazon with the rebate would be nice. As for any other upgrades you are going to need new ram because of a new board. You need ddr3 ram now. Other than that everything should be good. You will have a computer with similar performance to a custom built without having to build much.

Something from corsair is a good choice, you might want to check how much your operating system can support first. I use 8 gigs and thats plenty, you might only be able to use 4. You can go on newegg and go under ram and corsair and pick the cheapest one for you.

No problem, and the best cheap air cooler is the coolermaster hyper 212 evo, but if thats too much, the coolermaster hyper 212 plus is good too.
