    What Should I Upgrade?

    MOBOBiostar TA75A+ AMD A Series Motherboard - ATX, SOcket FM1, AMD A75 Chipset, 2000MHz DDR3 (O.C.), SATA 6.0 Gb/s, RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, AMD Dual Graphics Ready at TigerDirect.comCPUAMD AD631XWNGXBOX Athlon II X4 631 Processor - Quado Core, 4MB L2 Cache, 2.60 GHz, Socket FM1, No GPU On-chip, 100W, Fan, Retail at TigerDirect.comRAMPatriot PXD38G1866ELK Viper Xtreme Performance Desktop Memory Kit - 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-15000, DDR3-1866MHz, 9-11-9-27 CAS Latency, XMP Ready at TigerDirect.comGFXZOTAC ZT-84GEK2M-HSL GeForce 8400 GS Video Card - 1GB, GDDR2, PCI Express 2.0 (x16), DVI, HDMI, DirectX 10.1 at TigerDirect.com build, it was my first. GFX came for free, didn't have the money for a gaming one, didn't need one. I get 200ish fps in Crossfire, but everything is yellowish. Thinking of getting 4GB more RAM and a 550TI ish GFX. All I play is CF so don't suggest something expensive.

    You don't need more RAM, it'll just be a waste of money. 8GB is more than enough for any game. The thing that's truly keeping your fps down is your gfx card, the 8400GS is literally a low-power card not meant for gaming. I would personally try to get at least the 560 TI if you're going with Nvidia, though the 550 Ti has great performance compared to the 8400 GS. Though if you want something more 550 Ti-ish, you can take a look at AMD's 6850, it's slightly costlier but a far better choice. Or the 6950 2GB, if you have the money.

    Umm, since you only play Crossfire, you dont need a card that expensive i.e 6950...
    Maybe a 5770? idk.

    ^ that if all you truly want is CF, even though you could manage with a far weaker card.
