Hello all, 
Did a quick search of " good computer forums" and this was my first choice smile.gif SO I figured why not!

I have a few questions..
I have always wanted to do dual monitors at home. Currently I am running a single 20 or 22 inch wide... Love it but after being at work with 2 wider and bigger dual monitors it sucks coming home to this!

My pc was built in 09 off dell and basically upgraded to the max on their website.. .Which of course isnt that great now a days... I debate building my own custom pc all the time but I really dont have a use as I dont do much intense gaming..

The MOST I would want is Ultra on WoW with good FPS. If I could get that out of my PC right now it would be ideal... 

So what I'm asking is.. What is my best option in terms of upgrading my graphic card to support dual monitors and or any other cheaper mods to increase my PC performance!?

Hi, upon inspection of the system itself, a upgrade to the graphics card would increase FPS in WoW although the game itself is known to be CPU demanding but the current one should be fine. Before i can make any suggestions, can you confirm if your system is a Dell Studio 540 and your budget for the graphics card and power supply?

The first limitation of the system is the case size, so selection of graphics card will be limited to an extent and the power supply needs to be upgraded to support the higher power consumption. 

 

Graphics card: EVGA GeForce GTX760 2GB - $250

Power supply: Seasonic G550 - $86
