Good PC components for gaming?

Hello, I bought a Alienware Aurora a few months back and, I expected something better than what I got. I realise, now after some time that Alienware is overpriced. Alot. However, I usually dont have too many problems with lag in games, but some have occoured lately, with some new games, so I really need to know what components for my PC I need to buy to make most new games play atleast "smooth" on my PC with minimal lag.

Here is my PC specs, so please tell me what I need to improve, please ask me if there is more you need to know.

Alienware Aurora
Processor: Intel Core i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz 2.67 GHz
Graphic card: ATI Radeon HD 5670
Windows 7 64bit
Screen resolution 1980x1280 (Alienware monitor)

Hope anyone out there has help for me.

Thanks in advance.

  1. 1st don't put your email address in forums you will get endless spam. The weakest part of your system is the graphics card the 5670 is one of the most basic proper gaming cards and you have a fairly high res monitor. I sugest you get a 5770, 6850 or better card, you may need a new power supply as well.
