Upgrading system to DOTA 2

Hello everyone, wanted MAX OUT DOTA2. Looking for help during budget upgrade.
My specs:

CPU: Athlon II X2 250 3.0 GHZ AM3 (stock cpu no overlock )
MB: Gigabyte m52lt-d3 LINK: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3511#ov
RAM: 2 x 2 GB 1333mHz Apacer DDR3
GRAPHICS: Radeon 5450 :cry:
PSU: NoName 350W :cry:
HDD: Samsung 500GB 7200|
With this system i can play dota2 with the lowest settings at 1980x1020 . 45 avg fps

Searching used parts btw can spend about 200$:

corsair, enermax, ocz 550W~ ( 50$)
looking for 560 GTX, 5870, 6870 (150$)
hope my cpu is still good enough to avoid bottleneck with better vga ?

Maybe something cheaper? 460GTX 6850 ?

As i said you before my main point is max out dota2! and get some solid fps with medium/high setting on other games (e.g. bf3, crysis, asasin creed)
please give me advice and tell me what should i do !

  1. Your graphics aren't going to be the issue, I don't think. With a game like that I find it more likely that the CPU is the bottleneck. (Which is a problem, since that includes the motherboard too. At least you have DDR3 ram!)
