I built this pc in 2009, but finally think it's time for an upgrade. Just not sure which should be first to increase my performance in WOW. Currently in a 25man setting (LFR or World Bosses) I'm getting 7-15 FPS consistently on low settings. Outside in the main city or pretty much anywhere else I'm getting on average of 35-40 FPS on high settings. At ultra in Shrine of 7 Moons it drops to under 15 again.
I want to replace all 3 but trying to avoid spending $800-1000 at one time and just buy them over the course of a couple weeks.
have a 750 watt PSU so I would imagine that'll be good enough to handle any upgrades.
I am looking at buying these items for upgrades but if you have a better suggestion I'm all ears.

seeing the GPU on sale for today and tomorrow is what got me interested, maybe should just pick it up now.
I mainly play WoW but also play Sim City and SWTOR. and my FPS in SWTOR has always been around 25 or so. Don't know what its been in Sim City but haven't noticed anything horrible in that.
any help or suggestions on which item(s) to purchase immediately would be greatly appreciated.
