You will need a full platform upgrade to be able to play crysis 3

What is your budget? and parts do you need?

List of usual parts

HDD, PSU, CPU, GPU, RAM , MB, Cooler (if OCing), case , OS, screen and optical drive

if you dont want to change the motherboard you are locked to old technology. these are your options
ntel Quad-Core Xeon E/X/L 5xxx
Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775

but a lot of places no longer sell them brand new, so check your suppliers. you may have to go to ebay!
I would upgrade your ram to 8gb
a GT630 isnt that good, look to get a ATI 7850 if you have PCI e 2.0 or better

Thanks, my computer can run bf3 and I think I will upgrade the cpu and the ram to 8gb. Do you think I can run games better then or will it matter if i upgrade to two gt 630 4gb graphic cards. What should i upgrade first because I don't think I will upgrade everything at once.

The 630 isn't really a gaming card and if I am not mistaken, does not have SLI connectors so that is out the question anyway. If you want to play Crysis 3, I say start saving up for a new PC. Depending on your other system specs, at minimum, you will need Motherboard, CPU, Ram, and a GPU.

All current graphics cards are PCI-E and will work in any motherboard with a PCI-E graphics slot.

Well given that your CPU doesn't even meet the minimum requirements, that needs to go first. What motherboard do you have? Also, what is your general location. If there is a Microcenter nearby, that might change up your options some.

upgrade the cpu and ram and video card. or just get a new PC
