I can play everything I want just fine but I'm wondering how Titanfall will fair with this setup?

If you are happy with current performance then don't upgrade. Isn't Titanfall releasing in 2014 anyways, why the rush?

Might as well get a GPU while you can before they skyrocket in price.

Why would they skyrocket in price?

If it were me, I wouldn't bother just yet. I'm sure you're running most games on High still. Give it another year or so and see how the next generation of consoles pushes game requirements for PCs.

I've got a similar PC, just a generation newer. Personally, I'll be waiting another 2-3 years before upgrading. I'm still running newer games on high/ultra (those that I play, anyhow), and i don't see things dropping below the limit of playability anytime soon.

Wait until quad core becomes the actual norm for pc games, then do a system revamp

Possibly, although Hynix did say it wasn't a big deal.

It's scary to think a dangerous chemical explosion is "no big deal".
