    What kind of cooler are you getting for the CPU ?
    Also don't forget about a good psu they are the most essential part of a pc.

    I would have gone the Intel route since they are so much better (EVGA 750i FTW MOBO and an E8400 processor). Either way you'll see huge improvements.

    That 7750 has great value if you don`t OC. If you take OC in to account than I would say that E5200 would be much better choice. Either way it would be nice upgrade.

    hmm i'm not sure the nvidia based motherboard is the way to go. If you go intel get a p45 based mobo, if you stick with amd i guess it is either nvidia or amds.
