Why do you want to upgrade? What games are you playing that you do not get the desired performance?

If anything, Xfire 5770 = 5870, so yes a 6950 or 6970 would be an upgrade.

There is nothing wrong with your CPU at all, you should do a little reading up on Overclocking so you can turn that CPU up a little, What cooler are you running, if its stock, upgrade that ASAP and Overclock that CPU to at least 3.4GHZ

If you don't have a SSD, that would probably the most noticeable upgrade to the system as a whole, it wont improve your Game FPS, but it will improve the responsiveness of the PC and Load times of games!

Well, I don't really want to upgrade but was just making sure I was set for a couple years. I am currently using a stock cooler for the processor also I've been looking into SSDs recently I'll consider picking one up. In addition to looking into SSDs I've been looking for HDDs in general since I heard you can improve your performance with FRAPS recording if it saves to any disk that isn't the one that has the game that you're recording on it.

yeah you are set for sure.

Best thing is definitely change the cooler, and research the SSD, I could not go back to a normal HDD as Boot drive, Fraps does do a heck of a lot better if you record to secondary drive, but be aware, the files can become very large very quickly.
