    Currently I have the following components:
    Gigabyte P35-DS3R
    E6750 OC 3.52
    4 GB 1066
    Asus ATI Radeon 4850 w/ Zalman cooling

    Optimal game play to graphics is 1024x768 non full screen and casual graphic settings.

    Should I upgrade CPU to Intel E8500 or ATI Radeon 4870, or wait till Intel i7 and upgrade to X58 with DDR3

    No, you don't really need an upgrade.

    But what are your frame rates when playing at those settings?

    How is your framerate that low? I've seen people with 4850's and E8400's play Crysis Warhead at all Gamer at 1280 x 1024 with mostly 30+ FPS.

    Well I'm running a Q6600 with a 4850oc on a P35 MB, most of the time I can run 1280x1024 without any issues <30 FPS> ( The train scene has one point where it drops to like 3 fps). I'm running vista and DX10 and It's running on gamer settings also.
