What resolution do you game at? The CPU and the RAM are pretty much standard for gaming, while the graphics card is a couple of generations old, but if you're gaming at 1024x768 it doesn't really matter.

And of course, this assumes that you're gaming. If you're doing something else with this machine, that might affect what you want to upgrade.

What's your budget?

the 750 overclocks well, and 4gb ram is more than enough unless you are doing something like VM's..... What you should upgrade is the GPU, unless your monitor is low res... in that case upgrade the monitor and the GPU... but that's only if you are gaming... if you aren't gaming, but using it for other tasks where the monitor/graphics are not as important, and you still want an upgrade..... go with the i7-875k. There are some decent deals for it on ebay from people who bought it at microcenter...

If you aren't gaming and you aren't doing other cpu-intensive tasks, I would recommend NOT upgrading.....


P.S. What are the ram specs, mobo specs, etc. [More information]
