Your CPU should be plenty for this config and you should be able to game pretty good with the CPU and GPU combo listed. Glad that I could help.

How much do you want to spend?
Which 700w PSU do you have (make/model)?

If I was going for a GPU upgrade right now with your system I would consider the R9 280x/GTX 770 or even the R9 290/GTX 780, depending on your budget and monitor resolution too.

Sorry for the late reply,

The PSU is a cheap one i think, it's a XSONIC ATXP4-700W.
For the price i was thinking around $400-$500, want something to last a few years, and my resolution is 1360x768.

Cheers for taking the time to help me out too.

There's an ad on that page that says it comes with a free copy of watch dogs so i figured id ask, will I be able to run watch dogs at decent settings with my system with that GPU?
