Gentlemen, I need your opinion on my system

That is still a perfectly viable system, and that CPU still has a lot of mileage left. At this point, I would be thinking about a GPU upgrade, but only if you plan on playing demanding games like Watchdogs and BF4.

I would be looking at something like a GTX 760 or HD 7950. Those would give you a pretty substantial upgrade. Your CPU is still good enough to not be a bottleneck. Your GPU seems to be the thing holding your current system back most.

OS: WIndows 7 x64 bit Home Premium
RAM: 4GB , 2x of them
Gfx card: AMD Radeon 6850
CPU: Intel I5-2500 @ 3.3Ghz
Motherboard: P67-DS3-B3

I used to play games on my 19inch monitor on 720P; i can play virtually any games on High and still have a pretty good FPS (around 60)


Remarkably similar to my set-up.....

W7 64 bit HP
2 x 4GB
GTX 460 (the 6850's old rival!)
i5-2500
H61 motherboard
23.6 inch 1080p monitor

The 60 fps on medium is spot on for Battlefield 3.


I'm sticking with what I have for now, though. Might upgrade the graphics card some time next year, when more games have been ported from the new consoles, and I know better what is required.
