Your PC is the problem. Is the specs listed the specs of your "new" PC.

How much did you buy this PC for? If more than $250 your were ripped.

You'd probably be looking at a new parts for the core basically except the HDD, probably $300 or so is a rough estimate, that's if you choose to do it yourself. $250 maybe is a good price mark.

Ehh.... The 280 is good, but it runs hot and eats up a lot of power. I'd suggest going for these parts assuming you have $300 budget.
