Okay so here's the deal. I haven't upgraded my pc in probably close to 5(!) years and finally I've had enough. The problem is right now a pretty limited budget due to the holidays so my spending limit is around $200-250.
What really needs upgraded is my CPU. I'm still using an ancient dual core E2180 2.0ghz (ew) and thus I'm assuming I'd also have to go with a new board as well. My video card isn't terrible and I have a lot of reusable parts (hard drives, power supply etc) so I guess my question really is this:
What would be the best options to play on at least high settings at 1650x1080? I'm not looking for bleeding edge. I'm looking for something that won't make my computer want to burst into flames at the idea of doing 25 man raiding.
I've heard great things about the community here as far as knowledge goes so I appreciate any help you guys might be able to throw my way!
