    computer upgrade

    with tax returns right around the corner i was planning a computer upgrade, but i have no idea where to start. i have about $300 (maybe a little more) that i can spend on this. my computers specs are

    mobo: intel dp55wg

    gfx: radeon hd 5750

    cpu: i5-760

    ram: 8gigs corsair

    i feel like the graphics card could use some help, but no idea what would be a decent upgrade thats worth the money. any helps appreciated

    In that budget range, a 7850 or 7870 would probably be good.

    Really depends on what games you play and at what resolution.

    To recommend a GPU upgrade we would also need to know your power supply.

    You may want to consider a GPU+Monitor upgrade if you dont have a 1080p screen yet, you can accomplish that with 300 bucks.
