Although i run all these games great i was told there is a lot of room for upgrades so my question is, should i consider perhaps and i5? the i7's i checked out seemed pretty expensive and i'd rather not spent to much at the moment. Would i notice a increased amount of performance if i just bumped up to and i5, would it be worth it.
When your computer is used primarily for gaming the single most important part is the video card., If you want a performance increase the a new video card will get you that more than a new cpu will.
Right now you have a 6870 so a performance boost would be to get a 7870. The i5 cpu will not give you the fps increase that the 7870 will.
