Weird... With this PC And the 7750 I got 50 Stables FPS on the same Game Elder Scrolls Skyrim with everything maxed Out except Vsync, now this suggest that if I change to a 7970 I'll loss 21 FPS, I guess that's a Bottleneck on Steroids.

Thanks, I'll check prices for Gaming Rigs this Black Friday, had a lot of gaming things to Buy (R.A.T. 9, Razer Scarab, Gigabyte 7970 and a Gaming Monitor)... and Now a PC even though I wasted 200$ on a PSU, Just Awesome, A gaming PC is truly expensive these days...

Not really. It's cheaper than ever. I can build solid PC's for about $400-800 depending on how high end you want to go.

What you recommend me to buy considering I've got this overpriced PSU?

Do you have a Micro Center near you? A 2500k is $100 right now. For another $150 you can get a mobo+ 8gb RAM.

Quad or not I'd take a cheap sandy over that cpu any day. So in this list you get Cpu, Mobo + free ram, video card + game coupon. $20 more than a 7970. This will blow away your system with a 7970. So if you live in the US you could get: Heck if you live in a state with a microcenter you might still be able to get a 2500k for $99. (This amount does not include mail in rebates)

too weak and can be done better within price range.
so no to that build if your recommending it to the OP.
