With no clues on what you have now (desktop, laptop) or what is running in it (RAM, CPU, video system, OS, other programs besides games, which games), or your budget, cannot begin to guess. If you want to be sure, plug in a $700 GTX 780 ti from Nvidia. See for 600,000 compared.

A computer requires many parts to run as we all know and improving one part won't do a great deal if all other components are lagging behind. You have to ensure you have a good quality CPU (The more cores the more speed the better) 3 ghz+ RAM (speed and amount and type) DDR3 6GB+ GPU You also have to ensure your motherboard can support the speeds. Especially through the bridges.

We need more information to determine your problem, if you already have a high end system, it could be your CPU Temp's. Download speedfan to ensure your computer parts are running cool. If you didn't build your computer, make sure you tell us your computer's model number, or at least your specs (Graphics card, CPU, and such). If you DO need a new graphics card, keep in mind that your power supply might not be able to support it, if you bought a computer at a store from HP, or company's like that, you will have to switch out your power supply. Another problem is that you could cause a bottleneck with your computer if you add a new graphics card and power supply anyway. Make sure you have a quad core Cpu or better to prevent bottleneck, because you will not get the best fps you can in games. Also, as Nik said, you need to check if your computer can support the parts you choose, if you upgrade. Check your manufacturer's website for your motherboard specs. Like, you cant put a GTX 780 in a AGP slot, it needs X16, 2.0 or 3.0 (they are backwards compatible. Do some research on your computer and you'll come to a conclusion.
