My machine still runs/works fairly well but as games and other programs become more intensive i know my rig will become obsolete quite quickly. Certain games will chug along while others run smoothly. It's about 3 years old now so i'm sure some things should/need to be upgraded. Only problem is i'm not as up to date as i used to be on graphics cards and mother boards as i once was.
I would appreciate any advice as to what i should be looking at to replace soon to make sure i'm able to keep running and making things look beautiful!

So basically need to look at a new graphics card and a power supply before it cooks something.

Thanks!
