Chronos SDD 120GB
Antec 750watts Highcurrebt game PSU
MSI GTX670 2GB pci 3.0 graphics card
OS: W7 ultimate 64bit

i want to upgrade to:
i3570k (or as long as ivy bridge to support my pcie 3.0 card)
MSI G45 Z77 MB sli/crossfire support (to support my pcie 3.0 card)
DDR3 1600 (just a few bucks so why not)

Will this new upgrades be good or if you could suggest a better brand/parts please do. My Budget for this 3 upgrade is 350-400, i'm in APO address so all free shipping/promos is n/a. I want to make sure coz the money spent is a bit serious :D

There will be hardly any performance gain from this upgrade.

Hardly seems worth the hassle.

Your rig, as it stands, is still great....so just enjoy it and save your upgrades for when a significant performance jump is available.
