    Next big upgrade

    So I've got some christmas money and i'm finally looking to upgrade a few parts to my rig so I can play wow more effectively. All my spec info can be found below and the only changes are the video card had a SLIGHT upgrade. I was thinking maybe a processor upgrade to an i5 or i7 but I'm not sure. I'm just looking to spend money on a couple parts and I need to know which one(s) will give me the biggest boost, thanks!

    add www to the link below seeing as i can't post links

    For you to go i5/i7 you would need a new motherboard, and likely new ram to go with it. You'll wan't to upgrade that video card as well, which may require a PSU upgrade, but I suspect not since your already running a 9800GTX. Give us a budget and I'm sure you'll get some ideas on how to go about upgrading.

    replacing your motherboard can be costly, it all depends on your case as well. In otherwords you don't want to buy a motherboard that doesn't fit, when replacing your processor make sure the socket size matches.
