Now I mostly game with this computer and recently its been mostly diablo3/battlefield 3 multiplayer. I get about 50-60 FPS in diablo 3 and I'm feeling like it's not fully using my 120hz. I have never overclocked before and when I checked my temps, I'm hesitant (idle is around 40C) because I don't want it to go too far.
If I were to upgrade, my budget would be around $450-600.
yeah thats what i was thinking.. upgrade now and i'll be good for a while. also, i didn't believe the 120hz made a difference till i tried it.. i have a 60hz and a 120hz monitor side by side and there's a clear difference..
is it worth going all the way to GTX 670 or should i just get a 580/590?
with a budget like that, id say change your main monitor to a smaller 1080p tv, or buy a better graphics card, or buy an OCZ Revo Drive - a SSD that fits in PCI-Express x16 ports (pci-e x 4 port to be exact)
