im thinking of...
i5 3570k + gt630

what is the consequences of using such kind of rig?

i feel good if:
physx enable(borderlands 2)
smooth graphic (good fps)
1080p
fast loading
can play assassin's creed 3 at max setting
fit enough for upcoming 3years games(crysis3-medium setting is ok)

(current game that i have: borderlands2, skyrim, dishonored)


gpu are 3 months old. should i get a better one?

thanks in advance

Forget it with gt630. I don't even find the words to describe how much of low-end card it is.
You need at least GTX 660 for what you mentioned.

LOL GT 630. Bejusek is right, go with a GTX 660. I understand that the GT 630 is at a nice price point but you can't really game the way you want to on that. If you don't have the money, it's best to save up some and go with a better card later... and it sounds like you're playing semi-demanding games now, so keep your current GPU and upgrade later if you can't afford to do so now.

I think that you, considering budget gaming, should be targeting something along the lines of an i3-3220 (is that the coding? right?). Or maybe drop a little bit on the mobo (I dont recommend this really, it hinders your upgradeability a lot)

You are trying to get a gaming rig, your budget should be focused on the graphics card. Intel 3570k is awesome dude, but only if you have graphics muscle to pair it. Get a 660, maybe a 660Ti with the money you save by choosing an i3.

630 is nearly useless as a GPU for gaming

What is your current rig? Can you salvage some parts from it for the new one, like RAM, PSU, HDDs or case?

For starters you need mobo + cpu + ram. You can use cpu integrated graphics or gt630 until you saved enough money for a dedicated card.
