dont buy stock computer Wink

Buy gaming one if you have $$$...try at least get 2+ ghz speed on ur processor...I would go with i3 or i5...i have i7 and it just too much unless you want it. i7 not worth just for wr IMO..

I think u would just need to upgrade the cpu and video card. Does your motherboard have PCI slot? You need PCI slot for decent gfx cards.

Im not smart about saving good $$$ but def knows what work good and whats not. I build computers from scratch for past few years.

If your computer is stock, your motherboard probably have socket 775 (intel chip slot size) If you want new processor, i would start with
1156 type motherboard

and

get i5 2.66 ghz...

then get decent gfx card ATI 4000+ series or nivida 275.

-or-

Instead of buying new motherboard, You can always get different processor but it wont be any i series because of your socket 775. i series require socket type 1156. If you dont feel like buying new motherboard/CPU/GFX instead buy CPU/GFX

Socket 775 CPU

Idk your case size, I cant tell which gfx card would fit in ur case. :s

What other games do you play?

WR doesn't need much, it would be a waste to upgrade for it since chances are it's the runt of your games.

Emphasis is on Dell here, if you want a new video card, assuming you have a PCIe slot, you would need a new power supply too.

It's a lose lose situation trying to upgrade dells, if you're willing to dish out around 500-600 bucks I could help you build your own rig from scratch, did that for masflow and his is running everything fine.

Its a good idea to let money stack up to buy good build instead of wasting $$$ upgrading dell pc.
