Ok, so lets put aside $150 for an SSD. Have a look at Samsung 830/840 SSD, you can get 128GB for around $150. This leaves you with ~$300 for a video card.
For around that price range, you're looking at a 7950. If you want to save a bit more, go for a 7870.

MSI 7950 - $320
Sapphire 7950 - $300

Do what you want, mate. Have you already got the motherboard/cpu? If you're going to spend close to $1000, would it not be worth going to intel? Just a thought - not wanting to start a flame war again. wink.gif

Yea sadly I did get my cpu/mobo frown.gif i was thinking of going i5 2600k but this is what happens when you take advice from an intel hater haha

Is it too late for you to return the 4100 and get a 4300? You would see pretty decent improvements from the Vishera cpu over the Zambezi, not to mention better overclockability and a higher stock speed. I think it's worth the $20.

If you're going to swap out on the CPU... Then get the 6300 instead.
For $140 you can't really go wrong on this CPU's price to performance ratio...

Also, some GREAT RAM would be the samsung wonder ram 8 gig set.

If OP is swapping his CPU, surely it would be worth swapping mobo a swell.

Get a GPU from the 7900 series if you can, it will be well worth the money.
