    They would be held back by the CPU, so really time to think about total upgrade. I believe the motherboard is ATX so the case can be reused with a new setup.

    For a CPU, I'd recommend Intel Core i7-2600 or above, you can keep your 8 GB of RAM and if you really want it to be an extreme upgrade, pop a HD 7990 and don't worry that it's a dual GPU. I'm running 2 x 7870 GHz so far and have never had a single complain in even 1 game.. No throttling, no lagging, everything is fast and smooth.. And of course, most amazingly, I get almost x2 higher FPS in most of the games.
