As for the SSD, I have taken a liking to the Corsair Force Series Drives.

Go Sabertooth. Unless you want x4 SLI or x4 CF.

Crosshair V: 3 year Warranty, Better MoBo sound compared to Saberthooth but nothing compared to the Xonar DS. Supports 4-Way GPUS.Great overclocker.

Sabertooth: 5 Year Warranty, Supports 3-Way GPUs, great overcloker, ESD protection.

Corsair makes good products. I have a 550W PSU that sill works from 2007. Zero problems with it. So I would expect the same form their SSDs.

That is a very helpful comment, AstralReaper.
In light of the information you have graciously provided, I will be going with the Sabertooth.
I like that the Sabertooth has very intense ceramics for cooling, paired with a liquid cooling system I will be building, I will have great temps.
And I'm good with the one GPU I have, it is a HD 6950. It handles anything I've thrown at it.

I would also consider swapping out cases

err OP has a HAF X no real point changing cases what a waste of time and money.

HAF X is their flagship case anything would basically be a downgrade.

SSD would be nice

Have you got a decent set of speakers to go with that sound card?

I was not considering changing cases anytime soon, I love the HAF X.
I am looking into the Corsair Force Series for the SSD.
I have a set of Logitech Z506 5.1 Speakers. I'm happy with these speakers, especially for the price I got them for.

Easily the best possible upgrade is leaving amd behind. Go intel then ssd.

I've really been happy with AMD's performance. They have yet to let me down.
MAYBE a future build of mine will feature Intel, but not this one.
