I agree with clobber on this one. You'll be happier dropping a Lil extra on your video card, and saving money on the CPU. You won't be overclocking will you? If so you'll want a cpu with a "k" in the model, as they have a unlocked multiplier.

You could stay with what you have for now, then upgrade, but that defeats the purpose of a new pc.

Now I am on my phone and didn't checkout all of it, but clobber giving you good sound advice there.

I'm also on my phone now, so haven't looked at every item. When y0y0 said 'over clicking' he meant 'overclocking'.

I would also agree with what Clobber had suggested. That proc and GPU combined with the rest of your build would be pretty solid.

I like the video card suggestion, but I think staying with the CPU since it only costs 15 bucks more. Not sure which one you were looking at that was 30 higher unless you looked at the i5-3550k.

Are you going to be doing any overclocking? The 3550k would be what you want instead is so.

I don't quite feel confident enough to try overclocking on my own, plus I'd want to add in a non-stock cooling fan if I did and I'd rather just go basic.

I always recommend getting a k series because you never know when you might want that extra power. You can leave it basic and stock but when the time comes you will have the option of giving yourself a free performance increase later on down the road.
