Hi i am in the process of upgrading my system since its a little old. My current System

CPU: i5 2500K Stock


GPU:GTX 460 1G OC Cyclone


I was thinking of getting a GTX 660 ti but i also want a i7 3770K. What do you guys think will be the better upgrade. Also i just got far cry 3 so this will be mainly for that.

There wont be much performance difference from the i5 to the i7, your best of getting the gtx 660 or something like a 7870

+1 for OCing your CPU and a new GPU.

You will see no FPS difference from getting an i7

+2 to that. Nice choice of GPU also, that's what I'd buy if I was buying a new one now.

EDIT: Just noticed the chipset... don't think you can OC on that?

That's true. New Mobo required :)
