Hello! i've recently been using Tomshardware a whole lot, found so many solutions to so many problems! but now i have one last problem, i would like to upgrade my gpu, but i would like for it to run wow, and numerous games for at least a year and a half or more hopefully. I know wow is very cpu heavy BUT with Warlords coming in, blizzard have stated that they will optimize it a bit better for gpu's.

My pc build is as following -
Cooler Master HAF 922 Midi Tower Black.
Corsair TX V2 650W PSU.
AMD FX-6100 6-Core Processor.
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3, Socket-AM3+.
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 16GB CL9.
XFX Radeon HD 6950 1GB GDDR5 "Dual Fan".

theres a while yet for Warlords, so i was thinking of upgrading my cpu if it would not be able to handle it. Any suggestions to a gcard or an upgrade is welcome! - side note i'm getting a bigger psu as most gpu's i've been looking at recommend a 750 power supply.

Thanks in advance!

you don't need 16GB of ram, you can save money by getting only 8GB.
with that spare money you can upgrade your GPU to something with a bit more meat to it.

The hd 6950 isn't that bad for WoW i thought?

What is your budget?

That psu is fine btw,no need to upgrade that one.

Nope no budget, just would like a decent gcard that'll last for at least two years.

6300 CPU and I'd primarily look for a better GPU, a 6950 is rather long in the tooth, I'd look to 760, 770 anyway if if will fall in the budget, your current GPU rates around a 750 or so performance wise

I was going to get a r9 280x or a toxic version, would that be an ok card to go with? also is my cpu that bad?

A 280X would be fine, your CPU will prob suffice for now, if it's in the budget though a better CPU would help considerably also...as I mentioned though, the GPU would be my first choice to upgrade
