I don't know, can you answer yes to these questions:

Does your computer feel slow?
Can you afford new hardware?

If so, then you should upgrade. But, I wouldn't leave it up to the internet to decide if I should get a new computer or not, LOL!

Unless you have big bucks, (500+) you are not going to get much performance increase from your current setup.

I suggest the cheapest way to get more out of your computer is to get either a great air cooler (cm hyper 212 +) or go into water cooling h100i. Also, you could benefit from a ssd for your os/games. intel 330, crucial m4, sansung 840 is what i suggest and depending on how much you can get spend get 120-250gb
