My System Specs


if the sole purpose of that rig is for gaming i'd update the GPU only, you won't see much gain in-games from an i7 setup.
the 1366 socket won't be replaced till q3/q4 2011, the early SB chip will replace 1156 chip so still ~1years of life left for i7.

also if you're gaming with that rig why on earth ould you need 12gb or ddr3? ALL(i said all) games will run fine with 6gb, hell you can fire 2 game at once and you'll still have like 3gb free

hexacores are not a gaming CPU, buy one only if you encode/edit video,rendering etc... games does not benefits from multiples cores. A good quadcore is as good for gaming and MUCH cheaper :D
