I think that's a good system, should be able to run any game (But not every game on highest settings)
Somewhere on the Medium-High range I'd imagine.

Thats great. I was planing on building a PC to play BF3, but I stumbled upon some custom configurator websites with good savings.

It should be arriving in a few days, along with BF3 and premium (PC), which I picked up for 20$!

What if I told you Xonars were better?

Vanity shot, good thing my GTS 450 did not make my mobo explode again.

Xonars are better focused towards movies due to Dolby DPS's. This is more a gaming rig so I went with Creative. Plus it was $100 cheaper.[/img]

Haha thanks! I removed a bunch of useless stuff, like a 50 dollar case, a gaming keyboard and all these other accessories that I didn't really need for gaming.

Current stats:

GPU: MSI GTX 570 OC/PE
CPU: i3-2100 3.1GHZ
PSU: 800watt
monitor: 1366*782, 32bit 60hz
6144MB RAM

Thinking of upgrading my CPU to an i5 or i7 to improve gaming-performance.

How much difference would this upgrade make, would it be worth it? (or should I change something else?)

If you are upgrading something, what about buying a proper monitor?

And buying an i5 wouldn't be a massive upgrade, and you don't need an i7 for gaming.

A better monitor would be nice, but:
- It would most likely reduce performance, which on its turn would require me to buy another/a better GPU
- I've got my PC standing in a sort-of cabinet, my current screen just barely fits in the cabinet so an upgrade would made me have to rebuild the whole damn thing

But realistically speaking, how big would the improvement be if I would get an i5?
