    Also I have a 1920x1080 24" montor, 1080p. That might be useful.
  2. Quality power supply and a better graphics card. What to get depends on how much you want to spend.

  3. I'd be willing to put in 300$ towards upgrades, 400$ at most, what would you suggest?
  4. Best answer
    Assuming that this is your CPU

    I'd probably recommend

    Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650

    and either

    Sapphire Radeon HD6870
    or
    ASUS ENGTX560 TI

    Edit - Thanks GI_Jones
  5. Only problem with that recommendation is .... 650Ti doesnt exist...but your link to a 560Ti works

    You would be correct, I chickened out from building and just bought the prebuilt from Newegg, which was a huge mistake at the time. Thank you for the recommendations.
