Solved. - Ended up buying the Gigabyte Radeon 7950 with the Antec HCG 520 PSU.
Recently I rebuild my pc on a fairly low budget. You're going to want to think back to 2011, basically. Considering the pc was built in 2006, it was a massive upgrade nonetheless.
Stats are in my sig, but for completion:
CPU: Intel Core i3 2130 @ 3.4ghz (stock speed with stock cooler);
Mobo: Asrock B75 Pro3-M;
RAM: Corsair 16GB DDR3 Ram @ 1333mhz (16gb is complete overkill, but I stupidly bought a single 8gb stick only to find out about dual channel later on. Figured I'd just add the same stick to make use of dual channel.);
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6670 2GB DDR3;
PSU: Some old shitty 350 or 450 watt power supply. Currently powers the setup fine.
It's running Windows 7 Pro 64bit. It's running on a Samsung 22" screen at 1650x1050.
At the moment, I pretty much only play WoW. However, I'm looking to get into somewhat recent games again and being able to play it on near-max settings. Doesn't have to be all ultra everywhere, but generally good looking. (ie: WoW runs on all ultra @ 1650x1050 with Shadows, SSAO and projected textures on off/low (because frankly, they don't provide enough visual aspects to justify the drop in performance)).
I'd love to be able to play fairly recent MMO's and RPG's on fairly high settings. I'm not necessarily talking about Far Cry on ultra, but being able to max games like WoW and GW2 (and possibly ESO) would be very nice. I'm also interested in non-mmo games which are, afaik, heavier on the GPU than the CPU/Ram in comparison with MMO's like wow.
Will my current motherboard/cpu/ram combo be sufficient for fairly new games? And if so, does that mean my graphics card is a bottleneck? Or will a Radeon 6670 run new games fairly okay?
I've been assuming my graphics card is my current bottleneck for most games. What graphics card would you guys recommend in my setup? (Budget is not necessarily an issue but I really don't feel like having an OP card in my system, making the cpu a new bottleneck or whatever. This entire setup has to last me as long as possible. Suggesting a radeon hd 7990 is not helpful, at all :P) - This is all excluding the power supply. I'm assuming that will need replacement with a new videocard.
If I left anything out, just ask and I'll provide what's needed. Thanks a million in advance for any input. :-)
