Hey, I was just wondering if I could get some suggestions on which part to upgrade next on my computer :bounce: 

Motherboard: MSI P7N SLI Platinum nVidia 750
Processor: Core2Duo E8500@4.0ghz (with a Zalman-CNPS-9700 cpu fan)
Graphics: XFX Geforce GTX260 (not the 216 one, the older)
Case: Antec P182
PSU: Cooler master 700w modular
Ram: 4gb DDR2 800
Monitor: Acer G24oid (24" 2ms fullhd etc)

I was thinking of either rebuilding mobo/cpu/ram for a i7, or grabbing another gtx260 or selling the gfx card and getting a 285 or something like that
I'm using it mostly for playing games and watching movies, and I can currently run most games in high/med-high settings while playing a hd movie on the tv at the same time (to keep gf in place)

Thanks in advance guys

what part doesnt do what you want it to? , because if I have to GUESS Im going to say all that sounds ok so why not get a new keyboard

Everything seems ok in this setup. Nothing you really need to do, looks like a ok quality gaming PC to me.

look into the other components such as keyboard/mouse or even a 7.1 surround sound, What about the monitor? whats the height and resolution?

I have a Logitech G15 and a razor diamondback, both which I'm happy with :( 
For sound im using a decent home cinema, but while playing im using steelseries siberia headset that also works fine.. hmm

Theres nothing much else you would really want to do to this particular build since it's an LGA 775.

Mabye look at buying another complete build but, piece by piece at a time.

i7?

or just spend your money wisely, save it. buy me a 24pack of coors light :)
