does replacing your heatsink with one better than stock help? yes, by a lot. I rarely get above 55C under load depending on ambients.

Yes it will help, stock heatsinks tbh arn't the best when it comes to overclocking.

Didn't really know where to post this, figured since I have posted in this thread quite a bit I would put it here:

About to get my tax refund back and thinking of doing a little sig rig system work. Not looking on any overhaul(I've only had my 4870 and 550BE(unlocked) for a few months), just building onto what I have and the worst 2-3 pieces. Mostly gaming/folding rig but do any and everything with it from time to time. I'm going to post what I think I need and maybe some questions pertaining to those, but don't mind opinions on something you think I need that I don't list.

( )=Denotes semi-flexible budget for that part
1: (~$50-100): RAM-2x1 for 4GB total. I really don't see the need to go any higher for what I do, but just out of curiosity if I was to buy say 2x2(same speed/timings of course) and place it with my 2x1, will it run both sets in dual channel and/or keep same performance still or will 1 or both run in single channel only? I wasn't sure with unmatched sized sets.

2: (~$50)New HS/F. No idea what to get on this and really not an extreme must have with my ducting system, but when it gets hotter outside it will be nice. Thought about H50, but with my ducting, I think Air HSF would be better. Suggestions?

3: (~$100-150) Hard Drive. I think this is the single most important one I need to worry about besides maybe ram. I have a couple old WD 7200rmp's that have horrible transfer speeds. Don't need a ton of space, want speed more, but not SSD prices. I'm leaning toward 1TB Caviar Black or possibly 150gb Velociraptor. I'm really not convinced the Veloci's are worth it though.

4: Lastly, possibly another 4870 to CF. This one is probably a no go as I really don't have much problems with my single one yet and I'm probably better off waiting on 5970 price drops or more likely 6000 series for single card setup.

My head keeps telling me to just skip the GPU and possibly HS/F and get a great HDD(s) and the RAM, but I'm not sure which would help me most. I could afford them all, but I am frugal and want best bang/buck. I really don't want to spend over about $300-350. I'd rather buy best of 1 or 2 parts now instead of medium performance on 3-4. Can always buy the extra 1-2 better parts I leave out this time around, at a later date. Wow, this turned out to be way longer winded than I wanted, thanks to anyone that read it through and helps

1: I'd go with just 2x2 sticks, because I've heard so many bad things about the 550's and 4 sticks of ram, and 4 gigs is really all you'll ever need. That being said I'm rma'ing a pair of 2GB sticks I've had since they were still $50 and plan to run 8GB, so it's up to you.

2: I wouldn't worry about your HS/F unless you're really worried about your OC towards the summer, it's not at all the weak link in your rig.

3: I'll vouch for the caviar's performance, it's a great drive, but if you want more performance why not raid 0 two 500GB drives? since you're looking at a raptor I take it you don't need the storage and that would be a nice middle ground and net you 350GB above the raptor and still cost less. You might even be able to image your OS's depending on your partitions, so no complete reformat required.

4: If you want another 4870 you should go ahead and get it or just settle down and wait for the 5000 series to drop a little, I've heard that 4870's prices are going up (but I'm not 100% on that).

Overall I'd recommend your RAM first, you can get by with 2GB on win7, but it'd help most new games to have 4. After that I'd say the hard drives since they're obviously bothering you and are probably the weakest link after the ram. Finally, on a side note, I'd reserve a little for possibly some extra fans or quieter fans to help your cooling over the summer, and possibly IDE round/LED cables if your using any and feel like helping your cable management and possibly adding some flair to your case.

And as much as a realize this was a lengthy reply, the quick post ate my first post when I'd tried to go advanced to put in a smily, lol, so sorry if I was a bit short on anything! Good luck!
