Purchase a nice GPU, some GOOD cpu cooling, and OC the sucker (your i5 760), they hit 4ghz real easily.
You will end up spending WAY less for performance that will probably more than you need for just gaming. Unless you really are dying to overspend - then go Sandy Bridge (i5 2500k).
I say this because posts saying "Buy Sandy Bridge" have been showing up way too often and ignoring the basic question, or they fail to ask pertinent info.
BTW - could you please go to http://www.overclock.net/specs.php
and fill out as much information on your rig as possible? This will help in future conversations instead of constantly reposting info about your rig that people will ask for in these kinds of threads.
