Have to agree with Baron, Narz...I'm really not sure that you'd see a noticeable increase in performance going from a 920 to a 2500k.

Perhaps a newer / updated mobo and a new (larger) case is really all you need so you can push your chip a bit more?...remember your 920 is running at stock at the moment! Trouble is, I'm not sure what other 1366 boards are out there now.

There will always be new tech around the corner, but if you were to try and push what you have a little further then I'm sure it would be good enough to last another couple of years.

...but then again, if you just fancy something different then I guess you could always sell your bits and put it towards a whole new system.

Hmmm :think:

I definitely fancy this... Corsair Obsidian 650D Gaming Midi Tower - Black. Not sure if I should just try a new mobo then and keep my i7 now.

Seen this with £100 knocked off it just for today... looks a bit too funky for my liking though.

I would just spend your cash on a high and graphics card. Maybe double up your RAM and OC your current CPU.

That should do you well enough!
