Fair enough. Well you have a pretty good rig setup. If a GPU is not for you and a SSD you don't want. All I can suggest is better cooling, be it for CPU, GPU or the whole case.

Or save the money for a rainy day.

Get a monitor the bigger work space will offer you a lot more pleasure to your eyes.

Your current graphics card stomps all over the resolution your monitor displays, mind as well get a monitor so you can atleast ask hey is my cpu bottlenecking my graphics card.

I'd grab an Open Box 24" off Newegg for $120 or so and possibly an SSD if you think you'd enjoy it.

Decided a monitor is not needed at this time. Going to go with a SATA 3 SSD though.
