Thanks for the replies, I guess I forgot to mention my ram. Originally I had about 3 gigs of ram but upgraded to 8 gigs of corsair ram. Also it originally had an 8800gt but I replaced those with the gts 250's.
I don't use the computer for much else besides games so I was hoping this setup would last a while longer before I scrap the whole thing. I usually play GTA and fps games so this comp has been starting to struggle lately.
I was considering an upgrade to i5 2500k but people are telling me to wait for ivy bridge and the other chips in line, so I think I'll wait for the faster chips before I finally upgrade. A SSD hd is a definite must for me on the next computer, I just hope prices will be a bit more reasonable soon.
