i'm planing to upgrade my pc. but for being a pc newb i need help knowing what to upgrade. i know i need to change my video card and my PSU. i know my ram is good(i think), not sure about my CPU.

here's my pc stats: http://goo.gl/zrtKnk

it's not a gaming pc but that's why i'm asking for advise. most newer games i have to change the setting to normal and i would like to go on a higher setting.

Yeah, you should aim for a 500W PSU. Something by Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, XFX. Should be around $50-$70 depending on what you get and if there's a sale. RAM is fine.

As for GPU, depends on what you're willing to spend.

If you're willing to go $50 more you can get a R9 280x, which are pretty good.
