Hi all,

I have been out of the custom building for a while now (my last build was 2012) and needed advice on a good GPU for my aging (but still quite fast) machine. Currently, I'm running the following:

MBO: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz (not overclocked)
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTS 450 Superclocked 1024 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI/Mini-HDMI
PSU: Corsair 600w Gold
RAM: 16gig Corsair
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (yes, I know they're phasing it out, I bought the extended updates)

I would like to be able to play the new Total War games (Warhammer 1 and 2, the latest version of Rome: Total War, etc) with a bit more ease than I currently am able to do. Can you all suggest an upgrade? Much appreciated-- it's crazy how much has changed in the past few years.
