Hello again. This setup is pretty ok. It will churn out satisfactory performance in most of the game titles available today. Am not sure if it'll keep doing it for the next three years though. You will eventually need a better video card and may be even require to upgrade on the processor as more titles acquire quad core pushing performance levels. All in all, keep your expectations low and you may end up with sweet surprises. Won't personally recommend cheaping out on the PSU though. Get it from a quality vendor like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic or XFX.

A good PSU is critical. If keeping the i3 can get you a good Corsair model then that's the way I would like it to be.

6790 is only slightly better than a 5770. I recommend a 6850 if you game 3 hours a day.

your system (the i3 one) is fine for gaming at resolution up to 1920x1080. In some of the extremely demadning games you may have to turn the settings down a notch to get good frame rates.

noone knows what will happen in 3 years. It is possible that by the end of the year a new game will be released which even a $3000 machine cannot max out. it is always unpredictable. we can tell you how your system will perform for current games. if you want more performance, get an i5 and video card like a 6950.

They are all based on the same chipset so they are almost same. Just look through the feature list (no. of USB ports, SATA ports etc.) of each motherboard and select the one you like.

The easiest way of selecting a PSU is this. Get to know how many watts output your system will need. You can calculate it here at Next is to search for a similar watts (a little higher is better) PSU from a quality vendor and within your max budget limit. After discovering the PSU, search around web for reviews. If you find the reviews satisfactory then go ahead and get it.
