I need advice on how to upgrade my current PC to game

Approximate Purchase Date: late 2010
its an ASUS Essentio CG5275-AR003 with a Nvidia Gefore 430 GT graphics card

Budget Range: $500-$700 (or if a whole new computer that would be about $1000 if it was THAT MUCH more worth it i would definitely consider it.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming I'm hoping to play The elder scrolls online on release and possible WoW also league of legends and possible streaming

Are you buying a monitor: no

Parts to Upgrade: i was thinking my hard drive, graphics card, power supply, and possibly motherboard

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: but others are fine if need be.

Location: Sarasota county Florida, USA

Parts Preferences: Whatever is the best!

Overclocking: Haven't really researched it because i have had a need for it yet but, if it would suit my needs better i could consider it.

SLI or Crossfire: not sure?

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, i also have a 2nd monitor I'm debating using which is 1440x1080

Additional Comments: I was also curious about a SSD is it worth it and could i have both a HDD and SSD? and would it be better?

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Well my hard drive doesn't seem to be in the best of shape anymore and i want to be able to run new games on high or stream and not worry about lag.

Include a list of any parts you have already selected with descriptively labeled links for parts.
i was thinking these parts (but please let me know if something would be better that's mainly what I'm wondering)

  1. For 1000 you can build a very nice system. -
    Yes a SSD is well worth it. You should have no lag in games when using an SSD. Put all your games and programs on the SSD and everything else on the HDD.
