Hey Guys well as u see from below is my rig i cant OC my CPU because of my motherboard sadly so am stuck at the stock speed seeing this i thought to myself i should buy a new motherboard for the core 2 quad to OC then am like if am gonna upgrade why not upgrade the whole thing to the sandy bridge ? ;p
i went on amazon on saw these :
Intel Core i7 Processor i7-2600K 3.4GHz 8MB LGA1155 CPU BX80623I72600K

ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 Supported Intel P67 DDR3 2400 ATX Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory Kit for Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and AMD Platforms SDRAM CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

and like 'll keep my GPU seeing the gtx 580 is expansive

ram could be better, i would advise not upgrading platform, but upgrading your graphics card to something more powerful, you will be gpu limited with that setup

If you are all good then you should wait. I would save the money.

Is there any planned games that you are planning to get?

This tells me everything I need to know. I can afford to upgrade all my rigs, but I don't for the same reason as you just stated. If your equipment is meeting your needs, then you're better off spending the money on something else. Take a vacation?

if you want to upgrade then go for it, im sure you will be very happy with the results, may be worth waiting out the month and see hwat bulldozer has to offer.

If you do decide to go for sandyballs there is no need to go nuts, a 2600k is more than you will ever ever need the hyperthreading will be more or less useless to you. swap it out for a 2500k will save you a few $ for gaming you will never feel the difference.

That gives you some extra to spend on a gpu if you choose, the 580 is as you noted expensive, but that isnt the only option, the 570 is allot cheaper and still a very powerfull card and a big upgrade over what you currently have, the 6950/70 are also very affordable cards that perform far higher than you would need, alternatively it might be worth considering SLI on you 450.

you cannot sli a 570 with your 450. im sugesting that if you want to get a gpu boost a second gts 450 may be enough for your needs.

as for what bf3 will need were not sure yet it isnt out but a 570 will easily max it on 1920x1080p is my guess, wether 2 gts450's will i dont know.
