Keep going and don't look back. It's a toned down Titan, which i'm sure will overclock decently. That i5-2500k overclocked to around 4.5Ghz (which a 2500k will do no problem with a small/medium amount of voltage depending on the chip, running 1.34 here for that) with a GTX 780 is absolutely bang on. No bottlenecking with that CPU EVER.

Are you even having issues with anything? Or just have the upgrade bug and want to spend money? If I were you I would just set the money aside and wait for 8xx series from nvidia. Again only recommending that if you aren't having issues...

Okay, now why are using the 3rd slot for the video card and not the top so you have the option for SLI? I have a feeling you are going to tell me you have a sound card in the way maybe.

Well well, a sound card, go figure. biggrin.gif I use on board, you have Realtek 892 on board also, its good. Losing the sound card opens options for SLI. The card should be in the 1st PCI Express slot.

It's quite a high res, so even small improvements are generally great!
