The thing is I don't have that much money to work with. A real gaming pc would be would cost from $600 to around $1400. I was willing to spend around $300 to $350. Is there really nothing that I can do in terms of upgrading my current pc? --- "Two hands working can do more than a thousand clasped in prayer" - Unknown Gt: IHazTig3rBlood Psn: MOFONGO_PROD_

Start from scratch. But start with a power supply and video card.
Put them in your computer until you can't bear not being able to run games the way you like, then move the video card and PSU into your new build. (case, ram, motherboard, CPU, Hard drive(s))
I'd recommend a solid 550w+ psu, and whatever video card you can afford. the jump in performance should keep you satisfied for a while. --- http://i.imgur.com/2dhh8tn.gif | http://i.imgur.com/p5EXSiq.jpg http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/2/2/7/201227_v1.gif
While you're at it, pick a new case. you've still got some wiggle room in your budget. Make sure it has enough room for the video card, and USB 3.0 ports whether your current computer does or not. --- http://i.imgur.com/2dhh8tn.gif | http://i.imgur.com/p5EXSiq.jpg http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/2/2/7/201227_v1.gif

You essentially need a new case, power supply, video card, CPU, and motherboard. The rest you can recycle from your current build. --- Fear is a leash.

I'm just gonna have to wait and later down the road build one from scratch, cause from what you just typed I can already tell its gonna be pricey. --- "Two hands working can do more than a thousand clasped in prayer" - Unknown Gt: IHazTig3rBlood Psn: MOFONGO_PROD_

Get your finances in order and figure up how much you are able and willing to spend, then come back with that figure. you need to start from scratch. --- CMStormtrooper / SLI GTX 680 / GIG z68 / firstname.lastname@example.org / 8GB RAM / 256GB+128GB Crucial M4s / AW Optx AW2310 120hz for FPS/ U2713HM 1440p IPS for all other games
