dude, you system is FINE
Theres nothing wrong with it.
Save your money and wait til next year around the summer or so to upgrade anything.
By next year, new cpus and gfx cards will be out, if you buy now, you will face palm yourself so hard next year you will be in a coma for years.....
So....SAVE AND WAIT!!!
Save up the money and by the time the new products comes out, you can get all the high end equipments.
also no need for 2nd gpu at those resolution.
Looking at your system, I would say the only thing that needs some refreshing is the cpu cooling. If you get maybe a full water setup or even just a H100, it will net you higher overclocks on the next cpu that you will upgrade to whether amd or intel.Edited by RotaryKnight - 10/13/11 at 10:13pm
