Hi I am currently looking to upgrade my computer a bit and was just wonder what you guys think would be the best option. I have just recently purchased a new 2560x1440 monitor and I plan on either buying a new Evga GTX 670 FTW to go with the one I have all ready and use them for sli, but I am also debating upgrading my mother board and cpu. I currently have a I7 950 @4.2 Ghz on a ASUS Extreme mother board. What I am looking to get is an i5 3570k on an ASRock Z77 Extreme4. What do you think would be best for me to do, go with the extra video card or the new mother board and cpu. Thanks

If you want to upgrade the CPU, wait till Haswell comes out. The release should be June. I think your system is good enough to last until then. At that time, you could even go SLI if you wanted.

The i5 3570k is very similar performance wise compared to the I7 950. Not really worth upgrading.
