Hi guys atm i have an AMD fx6300 and a GTX960. The Motherboard i have is a Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0. I also have 16GB RAM.
I play World of Warcraft and it works just fine as i have a very good cooler box and (5 fans) and an Arctic freezer cooler fan.
I want to upgrade my CPU as it is getting old now and possibly my Graphics Card. I dont have a large budget so i am asking which upgrade should i go for.
Ty in Advance guys

I'd say either look to build a new PC or hold on to what you have and save up. You said you're playing WoW which is a low demanding game so you should be good.
