Not sure what to upgrade

I noticed this when playing Rift, I couldn't use max settings. I'd like to, as well as on other games but I'm not sure what to upgrade. These are the parts I have:

i5 dual core 3.2 ghz
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 graphics card
Gigabyte P55A-UD3 motherboard
4GB corsair xms ddr3 ram

  1. Not knowing your resolution my best guess is your GPU is holding you back! Based on budget then anywhere from GTX460 1GB / HD6850 to GTX560TI / HD6950 would be good upgrade.
  2. resolution is 2560 x 1600. Thanks for your help!
  3. At that resolution you will need at minimum GTX560TI or HD6950 (recommend the 2GB version). Now your CPU is becoming a bottleneck but can be overclocked to reduce!
