2-) On my current 120GB OCZ Agility 3, i will have games such as Skyrim, Battlefield 3 etc...

3-) Replace the rear and bottom stock Corsair 800D fans with Noctua NF P-14s

4-) Replace the stock Corsair H80 fans with Noctua NF P-12s for silence

5-) Purchase 5.25" bay covers for the case

6-) Upgrade to Windows 8 when it is released

7-) Change the power cable that goes to the mother board from the PSU with red extension sleeves, like the ones on my GPU and 24pin Motherboard slot

8-) Either purchase a 2nd 670 or wait for the 7xx series GPUs
9-) Might replace my soundcard later down the road

10-) Might replace my speaker system later down the road

11-) Purchase a good quality headphone as the one I have has damaged cables

@ phillyd

Thank you.

Also some misfortunes I had with my 590 were as follows

1-) 590s fan stopped working for some reason. The GPU was running at 0% and the games were getting over 90 degrees in a few seconds.

This turned out to be a driver issue. When i rolled back drivers, the problem was solved.

2-) I had these two artifacting problems with the 295.71 drivers

Althought it seems like my 590 failed, and althought I got a reply from Zotac saying that i need to send my 590 for RMA, i never had the problem again after uninstalling the 295.71 drivers and installing any other driver including the most recent one, 296.10

However i am keeping a close eye and if the problem happens again, its time to RMA.

Honestly even my gaming laptop performs better than the consoles.

Yes consoles have better support and people usually prefer them over PC but the joy of PC is amazing. You will love your rig.

I might also grab an Ivy Brige CPU if it will make a difference for me, but we shall see.

In time if you also grab yourself a 120hz monitor, you will love gaming in 120hz too.

I got my 3Dvision ready Acer Gn245 monitor to game in 3D, but honestly i am loving 2D @ 120 hz more. 3D has lots of issues in most of the games, and although it is still much fun to game, the technology is just not there yet.

Yup, MS Dos, CGA and Hercules graphics, monochrome monitors no sound card, just the speaker on the MOBO, and BBS's on a 300-1200 baud US robotics modem. 256K system memory and 5 1/4 duel disk drives and if you were really rich a 10 MB IBM HDD and the PC was clocked at a whopping 8MHz and later turbo of 12-16 MHz. Man has things chnaged. My first console was the intellivision, then the NES. First PC, 8088 XT clone..ANd I've owned everything after that

My first console was the original XBOX back when i was studying in USA.

Come to think of it i used to own a Commodore 64. Was it considered to be a PC back than? with a casette player. Or was it considered to be a console?
