ok, so my PC is working on it's 3rd year and i'm thinking about either upgrading a bit or building a new system. if i can upgrade and get another year about of this one that would be awesome.

here's what i'm using now:

core i5 760 2.8ghz(no overclocking)
SSD sata 3 120gb
gtx 470
12gb DDR3 1600

i do play some shooters and whatever else might interest me but i don't do anything too intensive.

what i would like to do is put a corsair h100 on the cpu and overclock it. i would also like to switch the gtx 470 for something like a gtx 660 or a 660ti. would an upgrade like this hold me over for a year or so or would it be more beneficial to build a new pc?

What res are you gaming at? if it's 720p you should be fine but 1080 you'll have to turn things down soon or you could always sli :D
