    Do you have any idea what sort of gpu i would need then with my cpu to play games like dead island? I have around £150-£250 to spend on a graphics card..

    dead island is not a taxing game, but with the upgrade you ll be able to play battlefield 4 crysis3 far cry 3..
  4. Assuming that your PSU is up to the task, go for the GTX 760

    As already mentioned the GT 630 is what's holding you back, it's an entry level card which isn't really ideal for gaming nowadays
