Web prices using Google ..

i3-2100 - £83
HD5670 - £60
Asus - £45

Using prices from www.ebuyer.com, I would prefer ...

AMD A8-3870K X4 3Ghz Unlocked with integrated HD6550D GPU - £87
Asus F1A55-M LE - £53
2x4GB DDR3-1866 Corsair Vengeance Blck - £40
Hyper 212 Evo £27

Will make a nice general purpose system and give you good performance for gaming at medium graphic levels.

I suggest you spend less on the CPU and more on the GPU ie a pentium G2120 and a Radeon 6670 or better.

Oh I'm not buying a GPU now, I already have the HD5670 bought earlier this year.

But if I will be upgrading it I'll make sure to keep the HD6670 in mind

Thanks for the input :)

CPU: Pentium D 2.8GHz
Mobo: Gigabyte G31M - ES2C
GPU: Radeon HD5670

Now that you mentioned the HD6670 I'm thinkin about upgrading my 5670. Does changing my GPU to 6670 have a significant and noticeable change?

Yes a 6670 is a going to make a big difference but it is still low end, I personally consider it the lowest proper gaming card. If you can find a bargain on a 6850 or 6870 they are a massive step up. It all just depends how much you want to spend this article will give you a good idea though you can normally find cards alot cheaper http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...
