This is my current build. I recently started playing video games again, mainly COD and WoW. I was wondering if someone could help me find a GPU that would get me better than 21FPS also would like to use dual monitors as well. It wasn't built for gaming in mind so I am sure there might be some other upgrades that I need to make. I'm looking to stay under 300 for the GPU if possible.

7850 if you don't want to upgrade the psu. a gtx 760/ radeon 7870/ radeon 7950, if you don't mind replacing the psu. the 7850 is perfectly fine for games like COD and Wow tho.

If you upgrade the video card, you would need a new PSU.

I know it goes at 310 but it is the best upgrade. Cheers and good luck.

Thanks for your input. I am not looking forward to removing my PS since I have the cables ran so cleanly. Though I do need more FPS so I guess I just have to figure it out.
