An SSD will give you the biggest viable gain for your rig. All my systems run SSD's and I can't go back to platter drives now!

What kind of GPUs and HDDs do you have right now? I think SSD is probably best. If you want watercooling I just listed all my (mostly unused) stuff on [H]: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1037352447# PM me if interested.

Voted SSD. Remember the new 990fx boards are just rebranded 890FX boards with native SLI and BD support. Everything else looks under control right now for ya.

Nope. The CF and SLI is on the NB chip and they redone the SB chip too.

Get a new gen Intel SSD then sell the GPUs and get a 6950/560 ti.

SSDs just make everything feel snappy, no waiting.
