Looking to make some upgrades to get my pc back to the beast it once was.

Hey guys so I am looking to make upgrades to my pc so I can get back to gaming at max settings like old times so I'm just looking for some input of what I should look into buying. At the moment I think my cpu should be fine, I have yet to overclock it so I think doing that would be a good idea. I definitely need a new gpu and maybe some RAM so if anyone has any suggestions that'd be great!

Current Build: Intel Core i7 920 not yet overclocked, AMD 5870 1GB GDDR5, 6GB RAM, Windows 7 64-bit

  2. I was thinking sticking with amd since I would imagine it being easier since I already have amd drivers and stuff like that, I was thinking maybe the R7 series or possibly R9 if they get a price cut?
