    find a site that has scoring software (not sure of correct terminology) pc world or such like will more than likely have one,the list of your hardware it produces will show where the machine is weakest with the scoring next to each part

    Your Windows 7 Experience index would also suggest your bottleneck as well, already installed and can be found under Control Panel>System and Security>Check the windows experience index.

    you could've posted earlier & saved me time from hunting all the junk i've got installed on my pc trying to find the index scorer,i knew it was on here somewhere but thought it was 3rd party not actually windows that did it.i was getting pissed off coz i couldn't find it,you'd understand if you knew how many freebie downloads i've kept in data partition :p

    Hey this is a late post but I have a basic answer for your original question. The video card is your greatest bottleneck in actual gaming performance. If looking for a more overall boost, a solid state drive is a rather expensive, but effective solution. The rest of your system is top-notch, and could easily handle a much more powerful video card.
