So my budget is 2,000... ready...set...go...

It occurs to me that if the point of this upgrade is to get the best fps possible, the better approach may be to keep your Sandy Bridge I7 and instead invest in dual Radeon 8xxx cards when they appear. Maybe swap cases as well for the look you want.


Radeon 8xxx series is delayed until Q2 2014. Also Haswell should post about a 20% performance gain and I have hopes it overclocks like SB, but has voltage OC like IB.

If you're brave and have a steady hand, you can join the delidded club and have your SB clocks with IB voltage. There's a nice write up on OCN that walks you through the process
