Bought a "Titan Nero" AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 7850+ 2.80GHz DDR2 System with 4 gigs of RAM and a GeForce GTX260 GC about two years ago. A steal in terms of price and did the job nicely for general gaming with no spectacular demands. More recently it's been struggling a bit when things get hectic in Skyrim and it now spazzes out and drops to low fps when there's a lot going on in GW2 (which there usually is) so I had to turn down the gfx settings which is breaking my heart.
Is it worth completely replacing the machine for a quadcore system bundle with a better gc (~£500-600) or would it be a better idea to just to get a better GC (something like a GTX660 ~£200). The main problem appears to be memory in rendering complex graphics or when there are a lot of things going on on the screen so, in that case would a GC upgrade suffice to be able to play GW2 comfortably whilst turning up the gfx settings?
Advice from a more techno savvy person than myself would be greatly appreciated.
