Core i5/i7 are better but to be honest your 1055T at 4ghz is no slouch, also there will be no point going from 1600-2133 on the RAM as AMD doesn't see any performance increases past 1600 and they are minimal on an intel system past 1600 also. i would keep what you have an just grab another 6950 if 1 isn't enough :toast:

Why in gods name do you want 2x 6950's for gaming at 1600x900 anyway?

Read what you said, oh and btw take the 2600k , Bulldozer is slower, if rumors are right, or wait for Sandy Bridge E, s2011 x79
I fixed that for you also, you're welcome!

Relax man. No point in upgrading. What you could do is get yourself a nice monitor, 24". You'll see your games differently.

Really good point here. The only two things i REALLY saw the difference after upgrading were my monitor and ssd. You use them as soon as the pc is on, and still they are rarely upgraded...

If you're a storage hog, get 2 more WD blacks and run raid 5, if you're after gaming do as others above have mentioned upgrade the display.

bulldozer is slow? where you hearing that. cuz what i saw a couple weeks ago is that hte 8 core bulldozer destroyed the 2600k in quite a few benchmarks.

EDIT: actually i wont go so far to say destroy, but still
