Hi :) 

You really need a better graphics card but thats not enough money...

Increase your ram to 8gb if its 64 bit Windows...?

All the best Brett :)

ATM my grahics card runs everything I throw at it magnificently with 45+ FPS in COD:MW3 60+, Black Ops 1 60+, Wow max settings 60+, black ops 2 high settings 60+ all at 1650 x 1050 (Take note this is with clocks at 925/1150(stock=775/1000) with no voltage changes)

If I where to get an Upgrade for my video card what would you suggest??(Not Nvidia please always damages my computer some reason)

Increase your ram to 8gb if its 64 bit Windows -- I was thinking about that although I want to keep my computer running 2 ram sticks instead of 4x ram sticks

If you are gaming at above 1600x900 or 1680x1050, you may want to save up for faster graphics card. Although the HD 6850 will game fine at 1920x1080 with some reduced settings on modern games.

You could spend your extra cash on another 4GB of matched memory sticks. Try to match them to what you have now if possible. That would give you a bit more headroom on some games and most PC apps.

Hi :) 

A 7990 is a little too expensive for your budget...save for a 7970...

But for that budget... more ram would make a decent difference..
