My current rig:

Radeon HD 7770
I3 3220 3.3GHz
Random MOBO 1155 socket
500gb HDD
8GB Ram
430W PSU 80+ Corsair


What are your views on I5 3570 3.4GHz?

http://cpuboss.com/ You can use this website to compare processors.. You can do the same for GPU's, just type gpuboss.com. Considering the i5 3570, yeah, it would be a big upgrade for your rig, after that, just upgrade your GPU and you have an awesome PC :)

A pretty decent site for checking out what builds people are using is this.

https://pcpartpicker.com/builds/

Have you thought about getting a ssd to boot windows from as well. I always thought they were a waste of money until I got one.

From pressing the power button I can now be in windows in about 7 seconds.

Get an i5. Much higher quality CPU.
I also prefer AMD builds.
