    The last component was the graphics card I went from a GTX 295 to a GTX 580. It was a must considering the extreme power of the 580, low noise and low temperatures.


    This year it seems that my system does not need to upgrade, looking at my specs what do you recommend to improve ?

    Thanks for any advice brothers !

    My goal is to play games like crysis 2, the Witcher 2 at maximum.

    I don't think you need to upgrade anything yet....
    Honestly your GFX is more power than your system can handle which is Fantastic So I'd say wait a year and upgrade your CPU & MOBO

    Get a SSD. Should be faster than 2 Velociraptors.

    More memory can never hurt. I see performance improvements in some applications with my 8GB compared to 4GB.

    +1 on SSD.

    Maybe another 4GB Ram just for kicks. Dirt cheap too.
