  1. What resolution is your monitor? Your probably better off getting a new video card, your resolution will help confirm that.

    1920x1080

    was leaning video card.

    thinking 6850 maybe.

    For 1080p, definitely GPU.

    Also, you might need a new PSU. HD6850 + Corsar CX400 should do.
  4. If you have a decent PSU, then I say go for a Radeon 6870 or nVidia GTX 560. If you're not sure about the CPU then drop down to a Radeon 6850 and invest in a decent PSU.
