Default Upgrading My Pc, Need Help

Hi these are the specs of my computer, and i was wondering how i should upgrade my computer. I bought this computer last september if that helps. I use it mostly for gaming and the 7950 doesn't really cut it with the my favorite games like call of duty 4 and universe at war with highest specs. I am willing to spend around 400-500 dollars to upgrade my computer. I'm mostly looking for a video card suggestion and maybe some other things.Thanks, i really appreciate it.



Power Supply
500w

Wow very professional. You could get an 8800gts 512mb for about 250 and spend the rest on a cpu. That would give you a huge boost in performance.

qft

if you upgrade past your current graphics you'll need a new CPU that won't bottleneck it... I had an AMD X2 at 2.7GHZ and it bottlenecked my 8800 GTS (G80) and this isn't even a great card anymore
