I am telling you there ares some really sweet deals out there to upgrade CPU/MOBO like at MicroCenter stores.. I highly suggest you get a P67 up to a Z77 1155 socket.. They have some great deals for a 3570K and mobo for less then $250.00 there..
For the $1100 you are planning on spending on a GTX 690 you could get a whole new system with a GTX 670 and Crucial 256GB SSD for that price.. I am telling you coming from a e8400 even OCed to a new 1155 sockets is a night and day difference. And coming away from a GTX 260 to a GTX 670 is huge... Go to AnandTech.com and a go to there BENCH section and choose your GPU vs a new ones and CPU as well..
Just my 2 cents...
LOL im sorry i didnt explain my self, of course i'm planing to buy another rig i will give my actual rig to my little bro. I'm planing to buy a 2500K + 16 gb ram. and yes monitor stay on one 23 inchs 1920x1080p. I have 1700 dolars to buy the rig, so if i buy GTX 690 i wont get any SSD
