I have a Phenom II x4 940 CPu, 2x2 Corsair DDR2 Ram at 800Mhz, Gigabyte GTX460 and OCZ 600W Power supply.
I want to upgrade above system to:

CPU: i5 3570k ( or i5 2500k )
MB : ASROCK Z77 Extreme6
RAM : G.SKILL RipjawsX 8 GB (2x4)
GPU : Gigabyte GTX 660 ti

My question is it worth to upgrade from GTX 460 to GTX 660ti? I dont know if i should leave the gpu and upgrading the CPU to i7 3770k. I will use this system for gaming only and i dont want the GPU to be a bottleneck.

I will appreciate any recommendations both CPU and GPU wise.

I7 unneeded for gaming, go with 3570k. 660ti is good and big upgrade over 460.

So what do you think about the CPU. I read that 3570k has less OC performance than 2500k.
Btw do you have any GPU recommendations for that price range ?
