dude, your systems beast for now. unless you use multiple moniters, save more cash, and upgrade next year.

For cpu dont upgrade yet. Wait till Ivy bridge comes out then get the i7.
For gpu the gtx 560 ti will make a decent upgrade.

do you have a ssd. if your game performance is doing fine then invest in general updating instead of raw performance. ssd better keyboards mouse or even a better monitor

well you could upgrade your cpu cooler to a 212 EVO and overclock. Then either spring on the new gpu or save the rest of your money.

Your cpu is not the weakpoint in your system, you're really only looking at a a small gain by switching from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ivy-bridge-benchmar... is the reference for that. If you were to upgrade your gpu you would see more benefit than upgrading the cpu.
