            I think the only thing holding this rig back from performing is that GPU lol that i7 should still be able to perform pretty decently nice rig though. Love seeing older builds still being used.

                The 1st gen i7 only runs at 3.0.  Witcher takes 3.5 (I think) and the graphics card I have has to go for Witcher as well.   Been reliable machine until about six months ago.  New 1200 w power supply replacement and I had a hard drive going bad.  Which is why the new SSD (with windows and the current game being played on it) and 2 TB Hard drive.  I used it for MMO gaming like DDO and SWTOR for a very long time. 

                 

                The other option for the i7 is to see if it can be over-clocked.   

                 

                So if I replace with a new chip and motherboard I bet I will be tempted by a new case also .  Really like the new ones with easy access to fan filters for cleaning.

                    I think OCing would squeeze a little bit more life out of it but yeah a new CPU and MoBo would definitely help with modern games. Could always re-purpose the old stuff for an overkill NAS or something lol
