Need help identifying the weakest link

Recommended Posts

PC config:

 

 

Rome 2 - total war broke my PC's back. I love the game and have to run it on lowest settings and it looks like ****. 

I know my video card is definitely due for an upgrade but can you guys identify any other holes in my hardware?

Any suggestion on a decent video card? (ideally $150-$200 if that's unrealistic than $250)

Lastly, I'm running windows 8 with and I have not overclocked any hardware.

Get a new video card, buy the best you can afford.

Yep, that video card is the weakest link.

Maybe you can turn off some unneeded programs to speed things up ... ?

 

Maybe doubling your RAM would help too.
