I'm looking at my approximately 4 year old PC and wondering what level of upgrade I should go for. I could still run games like Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, etc., but it's chugging between turns late in games like Civ IV and Elemental: War of Magic. So my question is: How much am I going to gain jumping up to a 5600+? Or is it time to go for a full mobo/processor upgrade, or maybe a whole new computer to start upgrading. Thanks for the help.
