Hi I'm new to building rigs and i know this question has been asked several times, but the difference is i don't need a video card. I plan on using my current gt 550 ti in it, and was just wondering what the best build i could get is. Also don't need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers as well. Looking for any advice you can give, thanks!

here is a build. it uses the msi 7850 tf3. it is much better than your current card and will play bf3 at high to ultra settings. or you could wait for nividia and check out their new products. right now, given i would sell that 550ti or you could keep it :D

Will an i3 CPU hold me over for a while or should I keep my current card and go with an i5

I would go with the I5-3550, an H77 mobo, 8 gigs of ram, and keep your 550ti. You could add another 550ti and run in sli, although it will use more power. Otherwise, I would just upgrade you gpu in a year
