I think the CPU and RAM choices are fine, what mobo are you going to upgrade to? Looks like the one you have only supports DDR2?

As far as the card you may be able to run the R9 270 (I was able to find a MSI R9 270 OC in the store for $180) it has less power draw and performance gain between the two are small.

Hmmn you are right i forgot my current mobo only runs DDR2, good eye, ill be looking for an upgrade for that as well.

As for the video card i have found a pretty good deal for a 270x

for 20 bucks more i get those performance enhancements and two games, however i do appreciate you looking into finding reference material i am going to keep looking around over the next couple weeks and will probably save the money and buy the 270.

looks good enough the only thing i suppose you will wanna keep an eye on is the 8 gig of ram as that the min amount for sc i think

I doubt people will need more than 8Gb of RAM for this game, at least not for the DFM. I've been using 4Gb DDR2 until a month ago and never had issues with RAM. So I think the i7 was a good choice :)

you will need a stronger pc now than you will for the pu due to the lack of optimisation. also 8 gig is minimum so you will need to match it or better it.
