So I've been running with a geforce gt220 for the past 2 or 3 years and while at the time it was a tremendous upgrade from my previous card (believe it or not) it's just not cutting it. Xmas is coming which means I'll have more money in my pocket and I want to upgrade mainly my graphics card but also my processor. Budget I'd say would probably be between 200-300 dollars on both parts (so 400-600 total).
For my processor I'm using an AMD Athalon 5000 dual core, I haven't really looked too much into parts for upgrades on this one but I was looking at the radeon 5600 series for the cards. My biggest problem is probably the fear that something won't turn out the way I think it would. I can read up on how everything works and such but I'm definitely a hands on and visual kind of learner. Any solid recommendations? It's mostly for gaming, I play WoW, GW2 and LoL, I'd like to be able to play in high - ultra with decent framerate in wow and mid to low with solid framerate in higher demanding games (I know that's probably asking for much with my old computer!! lol).
Thanks in advanced ^.^
