Since my motherboard doesn't support Crossfire and I got 2 ATI 4850's, I was thinking of upgrading the motherboard to take advantage of that. I don't think it would be worth it to buy another LGA 1156 motherboard since it is a discontinued socket.
When I say future-proof, I was thinking more along the line of being able to upgrade without paying with an arm and a leg. I understand with the rate in which technology is going at, that I'm gonna have to upgrade in the future. I tried BF3 with my current setup (without Crossfire) but it couldn't run it with 1 ATI 4850. I want to try out the Crossfire to see if there are any improvements before investing.

|sbond007||I would agree with prozac about gpu and ssd. But for a budget build its not too bad. Also, don't think future proof, you'll prob want a new computer in a couple years anyways.|

|prozac4312||Not worth it...CPU isn't too important when gaming...invest the money in a better video card or SSD, either will yield significantly more noticeable results than a new processor.|

Upgrading gaming system.
For under $200 I was looking to see what kind of upgrade on a motherboard + cpu combo on my system.
I'm running on:
Mobo: H55M-S2V Gigabyte
CPU: LGA1156 i3-540
Memory: 4gb DDR3
I was wondering if this combo is the best for under $200:
With this setup, I'll have an upgraded CPU and a future proof motherboard and total of 8gb of memory.
Please let me know what you guys think.
