    These aren't your system specs but I looked your model no. online because I am a nice person ;P
    I'm guessing you didn't upgrade your rig at all so you need a discrete GPU and a new PSU. You could get a new CPU but that'll be fine for now. OCing can usually get you a few more frames per second (if your mobo supports it). Your budget is $200 to $400? That's plenty for a GPU and a PSU.

    I suggest the 6790 because MMOs don't demand a lot of juice and this card can run anything you throw at it. You can OC if you want to.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161371 - 6790

    For the PSU, I would put a lot of money into it because they are usually the ones that wear out the fastest and blow your system up. You NEED a quality PSU.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817104098 - FSP
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151098 - Seasonic

    I suggest the Seasonic because it's modular and they make quality PSUs. If you want to save, go for the FSP. It's a decent PSU, too.
