Mainly I would like to ask if anyone if I can even upgrade or not. I am in need of a new graph. card because I wish to be more involved in high performance gaming and video editing/recording software. I tend to meet the requirements for everything except for my vid./graph. card... I would really like to know if its better to upgrade or should I just start from scratch and build a new one. For the graphics card (if anyone is curious) I would have a budget of about $200. Thanks to anyone woh might help me.

Yes you can upgrade to a better graphics card. What will really be limiting you is your Power Supply. What i would do is upgrade your power supply to be able to upgrade the GPU.

Get this Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The GTX 560 is a great card, for around $200 you could probably find a decent 560 Ti which would definatly be worth the extra $20 or so. You could also look at 6950's for $200 or 6870's for less than that. If your looking to spend less than $150 though, the GTX 460 is much better then the 560 SE.

I like to use this to compare different GPU's: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/540?vs=543
