I've recently come into possesion of some extra un expected money. I've decided to put it towards upgrading my rig by getting a new processor (and new motherboard to support it), graphics card, and more ram. I'm planning on taking advantage of the current sales on newegg.
Currently my budget is around $600 but I might do more. My current monitor is fine and does 1920x1800. I want my computer to support WoW on top settings, along with Dota 2, Dark Souls, and a load more of games I have on steam, but WoW is the only one that tends to lag up on ultra settings.
I plan on keeping my current hard drive, power supply and heat sink if i can, cd drive, and I don't need to replace my windows 7 OS.
For the most part I need to know what to look for to know if things are compatable, what the more important specs are and such. I'm not currently at my house but when I get home later I'll be able to post any info needed.
