I built this system over 3 years ago and would like to upgrade parts to get decent gaming performance, hopefully capable of running battlefield 3 with around 60 fps when it comes out. Does it make sense to keep any of these? I am thinking about only updating the CPU + mobo + memory.

Intel E6600 Dual Core (2.4 GHz) oc-ed to 3.2G Hz
Gigabyte 965P-DS3
Two sets of memories (not used together): 2x2G PC2-6400, 2x1G PC2-8500
Upgraded graphics card some time ago to Radeon HD 4870 512MB
got new hard drives 7200rpm 2T drives
Corsair HX Series CMPSU-520HX 520W power supply
Antec P180 case

Nice build for it's day. What's the budget?

I am flexible. If it is not worthwhile to keep any of the old parts, I am planning to spend around 1k for a new system.

Keep hdd's, case and possibly psu, how old is it?
everything else will be easily shot into a decent-powered 1k build, except ofc that noone knows B3's specs just yet :p
