The only games I play at the moment are League of Legends and ff14 Realm Reborn.

I can get the graphics up pretty high but I am willing to spend maybe 200 on a new graphics card.

Anyone find any good deals or could recommend something?

What are the rest of your specs?

I went from a HD4850 to a GTX560nonti. It was a pretty solid upgrade for the price I paid and any higher wouldn't have been possible because my PSU wouldn't be able to handle the load. Especially with an overclocked CPU on top of the CPU requiring a lot of power on its own.

you should be able to put any phenom (even AM3) on an AM2+ board, if not, it was the manufacturers fault for not updating BIOS

But he needs one. Upgrading one thing on a POS still makes it a POS.

Dude your computer is way outdated. At least get a new Phenom II cpu theyre cheap and still well suitable for gaming even high end gaming really. that should be your first priority.

And yes your gpu is pretty outdated, look into a Radeon R9 270 at the elast or a Radeon 7790
