My brother has that CPU and I've got the i5-760 thought about upgrading but don't think I need to for gaming.

I actually just upgraded my PSU to a 750 watt corsair and my gpu to an EVGA gtx 570. Really loving the performance increase from a gts 450, lol. I think next should be my HDD or more RAM(sitting at 4 now) Wouldn't a better HDD help my insanse BF3 loading times, though?
