New gaming rig help please!

Ok my budget is $600 i already have a monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, speakers, and a graphics card (EVGA GTX 550ti). I play mostly WoW, League of Legends, Diablo 3, and I hope to be able to play guild wars 2 on settings that don't look like complete crap. Any and all help is appreciated.

    Don't expect better settings than you get now. You would have to upgrade the video card.
  5. How much of a better card?
    And also my computer is running an intel cleron 450 2.2 ghz single core processor which bottlenecks my GPU, but I get 60 fps give or take a few in WoW just questing, when other people come into play is when i start lagging.
  6. I would recommend an hd 7850 for the games you want to play.

    Get an i3 3220
    an h77 motherboard
    a corsair/xfx/seasonix/antec PSU. 500w will be enough
    an hd7850
    8gb 1600mhz RAM
    A case you like that isn't super expensive
    a 7200rpm HDD
  7. Do you need a copy of windows?
  8. Yes i do for the new pc. Thanks for all your help.

    This is something to think about. It will be very good. Your GPU will hold you back the most until you upgrade it. You should still get medium settings in modern games though.
