I am thinking whether I should create a new PC to get the most of my 7950.
Right now, my 3dmark score with the free 3dmark 11 edition at performance setting is: 6659 & 7849 w/ my 7950@ 1185/1600

My Current homebuilt PC SPECS I made 8 months ago:
Motherboard: M4A88TMUSB3 ---> http://ca.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A88TMUSB3/
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T overclocked at 3.5GHZ with stock voltage
Ram: 2 x Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB->http://canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=24_31...
Gpu: Sapphire HD 7950 3GB Overclocked Edition (I still got my 6950 2gb sapphire to reuse if i build a new computer)
Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast TX750M > http://canadacomputers.com/product [...] _id=040599
HDD: typical 1TB Barracuda Hard disk I got for 50$ - I don't care much for SSD since I have patience on loading times
DVD Drive: Normal average dvd writer and reader

I might upgrade if i5 2500k or better cpu could benefit me now and in the future. I might also get a second 7950 for crossfire once a price reduction occurs. I am thinking of spending about 800$ for a new build without a second 7950

Yeah you're better getting a second 7950 - my system right now runs a 1055T and swapping the CPU for an i5-2500K will not make that much of a difference. Sure the 2500K is great, but that money is best spent on getting a second 7950.
