Considering an upgrade to raise my framerates
I play World of Tanks and my frame rates on high bounce around 25-30. I would like to get them in the ballpark of 50. Considering a new video card:

Would that be enough or is my MD/processor gonna hold it back?

I find it hard to believe that WoT is that demanding on video cards, no offense...
So GTX 560 Ti seem bit overkill...
I would double the memory for sure though...

WEll how much can you spend on an upgrade???
A GTX 560 and some extra ram would be a cost effective upgrade...
If you have 1100 bucks you can some RAM and a Nvidia 690 based video card.
