So my computer died after five or so years of use. I am planning on upgrading but figured I would get feedback here first.
I have an intel i7 920 2.67ghz and a motherboard for it. I also have 6GB of DDR3 1333 RAM.
(not sure whether to upgrade everything and just use the ram or not)
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: ASAP (THIS WEEK)
Budget Range: 600-900
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: all possibly
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com
Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, AMD GPU
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: Would like it to last a long time
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Old graphics card died and the psu won't be good enough to support any newer graphics cards.
Edit: if only your GPU died you can buy a SSD, a GTX 670 and a Antec TP-750....750w are not needed to power your build but it will allow you to buy a second GTX 670 whenever you can. buy a decent cooler because its time for you to overclock the hell outta that CPU

Would give you plenty of bang for the buck, also I wouldn't keep the ram. Only X58 sported triple channel ram, the rest like Z77 only support Dual channel, 8GB is fairly cheap anyways so you might as well.
