Well, I honestly wouldn't suggest that kind of "upgrade" the difference will most likely be minimal. Depending at what resolutions you're gaming then I would either add another GTX570 and SLI that PC or buy some Solid State Drives.

If you still want a new cpu I would suggest this one instead:

As for the mobo pick what you need.

Oh really? You don't think my CPU is old? I feel it's not performing the way I want it too haha. So the Ivy Bridge is a lot faster than the Sandy Bridge? Also how is the board I chose? Any good?

You might as well get the a 3770K.Its the same price and faster plus it gives you pci-e 3.0 with the Z77 chipset.That board is nice i had the P67 sabertooth but i like my P8Z77-V Pro.I would save a few buckss and get the P8Z77-V Pro like mine.You wont be disaapoint.I wasnt and i went from a 2600K to a 3770K and im happy


If you have a microcenter around you? You can get a 3570K and a ASrock Extreme 3 mobo (Z77)for $189

ASRock Z97 Extreme 4 / i7 4790K / Corsair H80i / 4x4GB Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer DDR3 1600 / 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black / 240GB Mushkin Chronos Deluxe SSD / 2x Evga GTX 670 FTW 2GB in SLI / Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty / Corsair HX1000w
