I am thinking of upgrading some components sometime soon *maybe 3months max*
I use it for mostly gaming and some miscellaneous things such as movies and minor school projects
my current setup
LG 20 inch monitor reso 1600 x 900
i5 2500k + CM hyper 212
asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
8g G.Skill 1600Mhz
PSU Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W
500gb WD hard drive
Gigabyte ati 6850
CM haf 912 case with 2 x 200MM fans 2x 120MM fans
TP-LINK TL-WN722N Wireless Adapter
equipped with a logitech g110 keyboard and a razer naga mouse and some usb headset
what should I upgrade if I were to get a new monitor?
and assuming I do get a new monitor what should I get?
I want to have a desktop ready to go for MoP along with other Blizzard games.
Was hoping it can run GW2 if my friends switch over but if not I was hoping it can run Arkham City and possibly other demanding titles. *not BF3*
hoping to run at 45-60fps most of the time
Core components to upgrade or maybe not if its fine for the current games
CPU grab an IVY bridge maybe?
Budget ~250USD +/- 50 to budge*lower is better* I live by a microcenter so I believe I can pick it up for 180
Video card/Power Supply xfire with another 6850 or getting A new card if necessary.
Headsets ~ current one has minor issue
Hard Drive ~ 500gb feels like its not enough
Budget <= 200USD
New monitor or dual monitors
Budget 100-200USD *lower is better*
Parts that need to be replace ASAP
Budget <= 50USD? unsure
Thanks for taking time to respond and help
P.S. I am a question about my CPU overclocked. I am not heavily overclocking it but a lot of people claim they can hit 4.5 without changing the voltage and mine isn't stable at 4.2 it was constantly blue screening until I turned it back down to 4.0
I have no problem with it being at 4.0 but base on what other people are pushing it to 4.0 seems like nothing

Reason: Unclear what I want
Hey, Insideme . I suggest (if anything) that you should get an SSD. If after that, you'd want something, grab a new monitor if you'd like a bigger one, or a headphone/mic combo for better sound/mic quality. Here:
(the new series of GPUs just came out and upgrading to something not in the new series while spending over $200 isn't the best idea. I would go with a GTX 670. It is $400, but it is a lot much more powerful than what you have or what I linked).
Total without the GPU: $404.00

thanks for being awesome and responding so quickly
hmm I am going to redo my post seems a bit odd
but I was thinking of getting a SSD when I was typing this up. Was hoping to get some suggestion on which to get
as for video card I had the MSI gtx 570 in mind and MSI ati 7850 in mind since they are about same performance and price.
