I know this topic has been covered already but I do have a couple of questions, especially regarding a possible limitating factor in the future, namely my CPU. This is my current system: CPU: Core i3-3240 @ stock (3.4GHz, 2 cores, 4 threads) MB: Gigabyte GA-Z77P-D3 RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ares GPU: MSI N660Ti Power Edition 2GD5/OC SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 128GB HDD: WD Green 2TB Resolution: 1080p I am thinking about upgrading just my graphics card to a 970 or something similar to be ready for Doom and other new games. The 660 Ti is still fast enough for most games I throw at it but I'm not so sure about Doom at 1080p with all bells and whistles. And I definitely want the best possible experience when Doom hits the shelves. I do plan on upgrading my monitor in the not too distant future to a 1440p one as well. The questions I'm hoping to answer now are the following: Is the 970 my best upgrade path? Especially considering my future move to 1440p? Will my CPU limit my graphics card? If not on 1080p then maybe on 1440p? Thanks in advance!
