So I'm looking to update my PC as its components are getting pretty dated and I'm getting back into PC gaming a bit more.

Now, if I were a rich man, I'd go balls to the wall and get all high-end stuff, but my budget is about ~300-400max for the time being. I figure a new GPU is probably the way to go for now, but I want to ensure I don't get hassled by bottlenecks in other components.

Current spec:

CPU: Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.67ghz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 5830
Mainboard: BIOSTAR T5 XE Intel P55
RAM: 2x4gb Kingston (not sure of the model, not at home to check right now). I also have 2x2gb G.Skill RAM sitting around somewhere unused.
PSU: I believe this is an Antec Truepower 650w or 750w - can check after work.

Anyways, if you're so inclined as to lend a helping hand, I'd sure appreciate it!
