I am MaGoogles and I am new to the forums. I am looking for help attempting to upgrade my computer, or possibly just buying a new one and giving my current one to my wife if it would be cheaper to just do so.
Right now I game (Starwars the Old Republic, Wildstar, and Guild Wars 2) and stream movies on Netflix, Hulu, and others. I am also currently running dual monitors and wish to continue doing so. My current problem is that my graphics card has fallen behind and can now only run games on low graphic setting now. This may be in part because I stream and play games at the same time, but even with my second monitor off I still have to play on low settings.
MY CURRENT SETUP
CPU: Intel® Core i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.8 GHz
MEMORY: 8.00 GB RAM
OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 8.164-bit Opeerating System, x64 based processor
GPU: GeForce GT 620
Power Supply: Thermaltake Smart 650w
Looking to invest about $300-$500 to upgrade.
Side note, if it seems that it would just be better to get another computer and have a second one, I would like some recommendations for gaming monitors since my current ones are some older dell monitors I got for free. Looking at around $100-$200 per monitor preferred or even just one good one.
