These are my current specs.

MSI Z77A-G45 Motherboard
i5-3570k
16gigs of ram
EVGA GeForce GTX 680+ 4GB w/Backplate


I want to upgrade my processor to an i7-3770k for all the new games coming out like Watch Dogs and Wolfenstien which their recommended specs require an i7. My question is, should I just go with the i7-3770k, a new mobo with a i7-4770k, or get a new graphics card. My main goal is to be able to run these games maxed out at 1080p/60fps on my tv.

Thanks for the help.

I'd wait til the games actually come out to see if you really need an i7.

An i7 will not give you a meaningful performance boost for its price, especially if you are overclocking your i5.

Sell your GPU and get a new one or just SLI if you want. Upgrading your CPU will do practically nothing in comparison.

Seriously doubt that wolfenstein is actually going to need an i7, I am sure this is like COD ghosts requirement of 8 GB of RAM, which was removed with a patch because it was not real.
