Looking for advice regarding upgrades

Hey All,

I'm currently looking at upgrade now that the new Ivy Bridge has been out for a while, however the question I'm currently looking into is how much of an upgrade is really needed? I'm playing Tera online at 1080 with around 30-45 FPS w/ Med-High Setting on my current PC and my main purpose for my Budget Gaming Rig was Games and nothing else. I hope the community can give me a hand again as you guys really helped me out the 1st time around.

Current Hardware:
CPU - i3 2100
Mobo - Asus P8H67
GPU - Gigabyte HD5770
RAM - 4GB
PSU - Corsair CX600

I'm currently thinking only GPU upgrade is needed and may need a better PSU if so, or can the corsair handle a GPU Upgrade. Thanks in advance.

    I agree with popatim the PSU is fine. I really would be looking to upgrade the video card since this is a gaming system. The 6850 is reasonable in price and should give you a good performance boost. Hold off on upgrading the processor for now.
  3. Hi :)

    6850 is a low end card...get a 7000 series...

    All the best Brett :)
  4. Alright, Cool thank for the advice. Now regarding the GPU can anyone suggest a card for 1080 resolution, a 7000 series like Brett suggest or can i save a few bucks for something lower that would fit in for a 1080 res.
