i have a very basic old desktop pc.it's core-i3 530,4gb ram,intel dh55tc.i want to upgrade my desktop within 2 month.which should be my future configuration? i was planning to spend 1000$ on this project.i thought of something like core-i7 3770k,gtx 680,thermaltake 675w bronze,asus p8h77m etc.is this specification is enough for me? or can i get a better system for my money? should i wait for gtx 780?

a 670 is better than 680 because is 100 more i think for that little difference (asus) and for gaming a 3570k is the best until now...to wait depends on you...if you can wait then wait...i personally i'm buying a 670 and when gen comes out (nobody knows when) i'm buying a second one because its gonna get cheaper....but you're choice

if i don't intend to buy two 670,then is it enough for me to buy a single 680 for the next 2-3 years so that i can play every games in 1080i with maxed settings?

cant say that because games get more demanding every time....but a good 680/670/7970 ghz will last but in 2-3 years not max but i think high - regular yes!!!

Big +1 to what andreas_vak is saying about the GTX670 - the GTX680 only has a ~5% performance lead on average. They're pretty much the same thing. MSI overvolting only applies to a couple of models (the PE models I think) and is generally accepted now that THG and the tech media over-reacted - not a huge deal really. When choosing a manufacturer, warranty is worth considering. In the UK, Asus typically offer one or two year warranties, while Gigabyte offer three years (from date of manufacture), PNY offer three years (I think from purchase date) and EVGA give three years as standard, extended to five or ten years if you register your details within 30 days of purchase. Well worth having if/when your card dies. If it dies in three years, they'll be replacing it with a newer alternative.
