    Hi,

    No because you will have the same minimum fps by cpu bound locations..

    If you're feeling the need for more power you'd be better off upgrading the rest of your computer first. You could get a nice Haswell/Z87 setup for the price of a 780 and see a bigger difference. That 670 will be struggling to shine with your current CPU.

    your cpu is not currently enough for a 670 in many games, a 780 is only going to be bottlenecked more. new cpu, ram, mb and watch that 670 fly

    I agree with above posts.

    New Mobo/CPU and keep that GTX670.

    You would also need new RAM, you're currently using DDR2. More modern platforms such as the Z87 require DDR3. Still comes out at less than a stand alone 780 mind you.

    Hah, seems you edited it in while I posted. Looks good to me.

    Grab some 2133 rams or higher if the price is about the same. Gskill is a top notch brand

    Weak cpu,upgrade to something like i7 4500 and you willl be ok.You have not notice realy difference having gtx 780 in that rig.BUT if you are fan of 3d vision like me or multi monitor then do not think and buy as much horsepower as you can ;)
