What do you guys think of the Processor/Motherboard Combo?

I agree with what others here have said. In most games, you will see more of a direct benefit by keeping the processor and upgrading the GPU instead. That is what I did, and it made quite a bit of difference. From a 560Ti to a GTX 760.

I am planning on upgrading the processor too at some point, but I think this is definitely the upgrade path that makes the most sense if you want to see an increase in gaming performance.

Why in gods name would you upgrade that CPU? Anyone with a i5-i7 of any generation might as well burn the money instead of giving it to Intel. You wont see any worthwhile real world gains. Just stick with that CPU for a few more years and upgrade your gpu if you must. I still run a Phenom 2 940 oc to 3.5 and don't see a reason to upgrade until I see a CPU that comes out that will be 1000% increase or my Phenom struggles badly.
