i wanted to know if i should upgrade, rebuild, or if im lucky, and hoping that i am, just play with the build i have, its a pretty old pc. built a year ago, with a very short budget.

the games i want to play are wow, starcraft 2, diablo 3, civ 5, and command and conquer 4

here is the build:

evga 790i sli ftw
intel core 2 duo e 7400 2.8 ghz 2L2 cache
4 gigz of ram ocz sli 2000 mhz
bfg tech 9800 gtx+
ultra 1600 watt powersupply
western digital black cavier 1 terabyte
and a cheap dvd/cd burner

also i have two other 9800 gtx + which are bfg tech, but i gave them to my friend, and i think he lost the sli connectore which ill buy later,

one more thing are the other 2 graphics cards going to make a difference, like i should i keep naggin my friend to send them to me? cause he doesnt want them anymore, but he is out of the state

heads up for the feedback, thanx!

The E7400 might hold you back a bit with an SLI setup, but I can't say for sure. Other than that you should be fine. Rather save for a new build than upgrade this one. Socket 775 is effectively dead now.

Most of these games arnt very demanding to play, bar Diablo 3 which we dont know yet, so they should work fine but herr states the Cpu will be the bottleneck if your Sli. And btw, wats with the overkill PSU?
