(-sorry I guess I should add that the system's already built, it's the one I'm using. I was just wondering about areas of possible future upgrades.)

Hi all! I was wondering your thoughts on my work/gaming rig I've been progressively adding to over time. Any stark bottlenecks or weaknesses jump out at you? Much appreciated!

Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost)

8gb System Ram (can't find the link)

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1

EVGA 02G-P4-2680-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB

Western Digital WD Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA

Wait until Haswell comes out and dump your whole system. 2014 maybe.

What a waste.. Your system is running fine for the moment then you could possibly upgrade your cpu and mobo when haswell comes out later this year

For immediate upgrades, you can consider getting a Z77 chipset motherboard and get a i5 3570k. Your graphics card and PSU are solid for at least another year. Also, you might want to get a SSD, best price/ performance boost.

For future upgrades, you can wait for the new Haswell series CPUs to come out (June 2013), then get a new i5-4xxxk CPU and a new motherboard.
