Hey guys im relatively new to the whole computer modifications realm and upgrades. About a year ish ago i got a Dell XPS 8500, processor is an Intel Core i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40 GHz. I have 12.0 GB of RAM and windows 7 64 bit. Anyways I'm trying to upgrade my rig before Warlords of Draenor comes out. My graphics card is a GTX 640 which i know is pretty weak. So if i were to upgrade where should i go from here? Hopefully I want to make pretty cost efficient upgrades, nothing to crazy but i defnitly hope i'll see a difference. Thanks for any help :)  If anyone knows of any killer deals too, please provide links :)

You are looking at a $100 or better graphics card to get a good boost in graphics capability.
Most likely, you will need to upgrade the psu to handle it.

Yeah start with getting a good 550-600w PSU I'd suggest xfx seasonic or corsair. Then get a decent gpu. Make sure you measure the space the card has to fit the higher end cards take a lot of space and I dont think your case would handle the beefy ones like a 780 or a r9 290x
