Should I upgrade?

So I've had my system a little over a year or so. It is a custom build pc with parts from newegg.

Asus Extreme3 gen3 Mobo
Intel core i52500k
8gb Ram corsair vengeance
1Tb Seagate 7200 rpm HD
128GB Crucial M4 SSD
1GB MSI Twin Frozr/OC Nvidia 560Ti
Corsair 750W Powersupply
Roswell Challenger Case

I use windows 7 on the SSD and install the rest on my 1TB. PC is super fast, gaming is great. I haven't kept up to date on new things as I have been busy with work. Was thinking maybe a new case and a new GPU? Newegg has financing on the GTX 680 or maybe upgrade other parts?

Opinions and suggestions are welcomed and appreciated :)

  1. I don't see anything wrong with your current system. If anything, I'd probably consider adding a second 560Ti for SLI and a couple more monitors for NVidia Surround Viewing.

    upgrade your GPU and that's about it for now.


    yes right
  3. Haha you guys hit the nail on the head. I would have to see if I still have the SLI bridge that came with the card? I could easily afford another 560ti but would that be proper or just get something else? Most likely I would need a bigger case for a newer card.

    I play mainly Batman:AA &AC, Crysis 2, BF3, Hitman Blood Money, Max Payne 3..they are all maxed out.
