Default time to upgrade the video card

Okay time to upgrade, and honestly i have not been following the trends on the new cards for around a year, so i really need your guys help

I am currently running a 8800GTS the 380mb model? cant remember here at work, I want some more power i belive, i have noticed my FPS on really the only game i play, WoW and i am getting only 30 - 40 FPS, a lot of graphical lag now and then as well

I guess i could upgrade the CPU as well! damn cant even remember what cpu it is lol, it is a early C2D low end at the time

the board is a gigabyte DS3,
