Just wanted to make a little poll to see what people would choose if they could upgrade/add one piece of hardware in their rig. Mine would have to be case, I would love to upgrade to a full size tower. My guess would be most people will say video card, most likely a 7970, but who knows thumb.gif

a video card. a 7000 series would be also, but even something like a 500 series card would be a massive step up. thumb.gif

I would actually like to have a nice big case also, At some point when you have had a case too long it just needs to be changed biggrin.gif

All you can do is your GPU at this point, or a SSD. If you want more CPU power its intel i5 2500k time, but there is nothing wrong with your CPU. Your UD3 mobo is a pretty good one IMO. I have had great luck with mine. Your PSU is going to handle a bit before your taxing it. Your GPU's are pretty low end. So yea...GPU is the logical way to go IMO, unless they serve your needs well. Then its SSD time.

I'm happy with my CPU, motherboard, video card, case, and PSU. I even got a new sound card about a week ago. What I really need is a SSD and another HDD. I'm running low on space, and this current drive is bottlenecking my system by itself.
