  1. the 4170 is a lateral move, possibly a step slightly backward, keep your 955 until Piledriver comes out, get the gpu and ssd though
  2. your current rig you are using looks ok from here. i dont see too much of a point upgrading
  3. So really no point into needing to upgrade the GPU (5850 HD). I was thinking of getting a 2nd 5850 but with the micro-stuttering problems i guess I'd better stay way from it.

    there is no point.

    micro-stuttering is pretty much solved in the newer cards through better drivers. sometimes it still exsits but not as much as it used to
