    Computer Upgrade Suggestions

    Hey guys, I'm thinking of upgrading my computer a bit because of the black friday sales. I bought my computer two years ago from Dell put together already...but I'm confident enough to upgrade pieces on my own.

    What pieces should I focus on? Where would the biggest upgrade for price be? Just let me know if I need to include anything else. I have two monitors. Thanks!

    PSU is Power Supply Unit. Ie, where the cable from the wall goes. What's interesting to us would be brand, model name/number and amount of power (in watt).

    Where would you like to see upgrades? In games? In how fast the computer feels when browsing, doing office, doing photoshop? Which games?
    How much of a budget have you got? Would you be comfortable in shopping online?

    I would probably rather shop online....the prices are probably better. I pretty much play only World of Warcraft...so I'd like to keep the settings high or maybe even go higher. I generally multi-task a lot and have a lot of browsers up....the computer does get slow sometimes. That could be stupid flash crashing all the time. I'm not sure about my budget actually...depends on the deals...but when I go looking I'd like to know where I should focus first, second, etc. to get the most upgrade/benefit.
