  1. I suggest you go for a new build altogether
  2. Best answer

    Without changing your VGA card, you wont achieve better performace in games. It is true in general, aside from some extreme cases.
    I would say look for a better VGA card, thats the quickest solution. You should upgrade your CPU and motherboard later to an extent that they wont hold back your new VGA card.

    Take a look at this:,3107.html

  3. So for my computer I need to be looking more at graphics cards than anything else?
    when do i know its time to be getting a new motherboard?
  4. Motherboard is mainly there for housing the other components. ( aside from the integrated parts - LAN, Ethernet, Sound card ... )
    Your concerns in gaming is VGA > CPU > RAM > motherboard. Just make sure the CPU doesn't bottleneck ( hold back ) the VGA for example.

    Radeon R7 265
    GeForce GTX 750Ti
