For your resolution, it doesn't make sense to get a more powerful video card.

But with the 2500K, you will notice a considerable difference with your computer, and you should be able to max most games at that res. Plus, you'll be much happier with a faster computer.

I get about 55 FPS in Crysis 2 at the Extreme settings, overclocked to 800-1800.

I'm testing 840 clocks now, and getting 55-60 FPS.

So true. I haven't had a need to upgrade from my 470 @ 1080p. Kepler should be great. You're right, it's not literally 3 times faster.

Yeah, no. To play most games at this res at max. settings with AA you need something like a Radeon HD 6850.

I'm doing this because I would rather have the GPU in place and have some room to think of when I wanted to upgrade to 1080p and what CPU I wanted to get.
I find your lack of faith in the 470 disturbing...

1680x1050 and 1920x1080 are very similar perfomance wise.

No they're not. 1080p is 85% more pixels to fill over 1680x1050.

And honestly, at such a lower resolution and a weak CPU, you have no reason to spend $500 on a new GPU. You won't see a drop of performance increase.

Get a better CPU setup going first. That'd be a MUCH wiser investment of $500. That 470 is still killer. With my i5 and my 470, I could max anything I wanted at 1080p except Metro.

I know... I remember getting the EVGA Superclocked 470 back when it first came out too. I am sorry...
