Have you got good speakers? That could be an idea.

Your rig is good, no need to upgrade it.

Your rig is pretty complete. Everything is good except for the PSU which looks like it may fail any time. Try to get a Corsair 750TX. Also if you don't have a good CPU cooler and its limiting your OC then get a nice heatsink e.g. TRUE.





YES!

The Power supply is actually the best one I've ever had, you should check out the reviews for it, also comes with a utility to monitor the wattage usage and it never goes over 400watts so it aint going to fail anytime soon, its a hardware utility also not software.

I'd say add an x-fi sound card if you don't wanna upgrade your PSU for future upgrades xD

probably go for the x-fi extreme music. Or, if you can find one of the higher end x-fi's, go fer it

But it looks like that the only thing worth upgrading is getting a 3rd 4850, and that would be pushing your PSU.

I would also say PSU, as you will be 'future proofing' yourself for more possible upgrades down the line e.g. Water Cooling etc.
