you play at a low resolution so you can easily max out graphics with a 5750, get the 5770 if you plan to upgrade your monitor

but no one can recommend you a CPU upgrade unless you tell us what your motherboard make & model number is

Well when you say high CPU do you mean you are ready to change your Motherboard too?

This will allow you to reuse your DDR2 ram If you go I5 you will have to replace your ram with DDR3

If you go with this processor it will save you about $60 so your total would come down to 359.97

Now this is going with DDR3 If you do want to save some dough and spend it on hard drive go with this motherboard.

Will leave you with $75 to get a decent hard drive.

I would go with reuseing your ram IMO its cheaper and DDR3 really dosent add to much in performance. I just listed the DDR3 route to show you how much it would cost.
