im gaming on a 1080p 32'' led 120hz refresh rate tv. I play games like battlefield 3, need for speed hot pursuit, hitman absolution, minecraft, guild wars 2, star trek online......mostly guild wars 2. with my fx6300 and gtx 680, fps drops dramatically on heavy group events like in guild wars 2 down below 20 fps, i heard mmo games are very cpu-dependent, so i just need some confirmation on whether if it was an ideal upgrade. Plus, a second 680 just for the hell of it. Why not.

Pretty stoked for Battlefield 4, hopefully, with all the upgrades I'm planning on doing, i can run bf4 on all ultra settings at a stable 60fps... hopefully

with just one 680? oc your cpu to 4.8GHz if you can, then that will help a lot. afaik, a thuban at 4GHz is about equal to a 4.7 - 4.8 GHz 6300.

if you plan to add another 680, then the cheapest route (especially for BF3 MP) is the 8300 series chip.
my thuban at 4GHz handled the 7970 at stock just fine.

Adding that you are trying to future proof changes things. If you have the money, then why not? Go haswell flagship 4770k and pair it with a nice z87 board capable of running however many gpu's you think you may add. Haswell may be the last user replaceable cpu socket from intel.

Ripsaw, what z87 board do you recommend? i was on the micro center website, and they got a few i7-4770k plus motherboard bundle deals, and i can't decide between the asrock z87 extreme4 ($390), the gigabyte ga z87x-ud4h($420), or the asus sabertooth z87($500)

Sli 680's WILL ourpreform the new gen consoles. And getting an i7 isn't necessarily for gaming IMO, save some money and get a 4670k (i5 haswell)
