first upgrade your ram to at least 4 gb(I suggest you 8gb),then your monitor because having a GPU like this or even R9 280X on this res is useless(your 7750 good for this res) and then finally upgrade your GPU

waiting is always good, and your gpu will be able to handle with most games on medium settings for a year, so wait and save some money

you'll need a good PSU, which has 2x 6 pin cables, that's all.
but your processor isn't strong enough, you'll have a bit of bottleneck.

bottleneck always exists, but you can lower it.
it won't be that much, because you're playing on fullHD, so don't worry :)

I got an XFX card, but I traded in the standard cooling so I can't say much :) They got a very clear warranty service though, up to specific model number.

not by experience, I just hear XFX are bad and they take shortcuts in manufacturing the GPU, for cooling I prefer HIS

xfx are in most cases the cheapest cards of each category in my country, and this-in combination with their rather plain looks-makes people believe they are bad. what do you think? seems fine to me
