OT: I would recommend getting the most cost efficient parts possible. I mean, that may be an apparent fact with most things; 'get the best you can for the least you can', but I feel that it really is important to consider depending on your budget. This laptop I'm on was only 500~600 USD and it actually runs on the line of a gaming computer. My specs wouldn't agree with me on that, but it seems like it runs a lot faster than it should.

Unless you're doing video encoding and rendering and whatnot on a regular basis the i7 offers little to no benefit over the i5 2500K.
You might want to drop down, buy a decent heat-sink fan and give the i5 a bit of an overclock, if you fancy.

Hmmmph the problem is I already paid the money and it must be getting montaged as I'm typing these. Actually I was going to buy a cheaper system or a decent laptop with an i5 cpu but one of my friends, who's a gaming freak, pointed out that I had been using the same unupgraded AMD 2500+, 1gig ram, 256mb Geforce 5700, 120 gb maxtor HD, and a philips flatsquare monitor since 2005 and encouraged me to buy the "future of gaming" as I wanted to play some decent games without thinking about if they would work or not. I don't know if I should be sad or happy:S. I will be dumping 1/3 of my salary for 5 months on this. Should I feel bad?

Well just enjoy your computer, I'd say. I can't really see anything in particular wrong with it - it'll perform well for whatever you want to do with it.

Hm, I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate place to ask this, but I don't want to create a whole new topic just for a simple question.

Is it worth it buy a sound card? I've always used the onboard system on the mainboard, so I don't know if there are any significant improvements from buying a sound card. Specifically, I'm considering buying this card: http://us.store.creative.com/Sound-Blaster-XFi-XtremeGamer/M/B000J1F1BI.htm

Suggestions?

The only improvements I've really taken advantage of is sound mixing from several sources. With a separate sound card, you tend to have multiple source jacks that the card can put together into one output.

Oh man, I'd kill for that graphics card. My PC is otherwise fairly powerful, but my graphics card is only a Radeon HD4870.
