I want a new graphics card and anything else that needs to be updated. I play games and record xbox gameplay plus photoshop and movies as well.
Any help would be apppreciated i dont know to much about the hardware end. Money isnt a problem to an extent.
Both your processor and GPU are outdated. I would consider purchasing something like a new i5 3570k.
As for the GPU, This is nice upgrade: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130809
Mobo: Something simple, like this maybe. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128550
For the HD, I would stick with a non-discontinued version of what you have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533
I would get some new Samsung RAM, tends to work nicely. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147092
I don't see the immediate need to upgrade your PSU. However, if you really want to I would go with something Antec or Corsair.
Hope this helps.
