  1. You need to find out what power supply you have, list your budget, and that's about it
  2. With that cpu, just buy a 650ti and that will be about the max you can get before wasting money due to your cpu bottlenecking a higher end card.

    The 7770 is another card that would do for around the same price. To have either of these cards, you will need a compatible power supply

    Ok, basically you have no room for upgrade with that power supply and would be better off building a new system with gaming in mind. A decent gaming system can be had for $600 that will rival the ps4 while still having all the function of a full fledged computer
