it looks like your have some room to play with. I'd definetly add a SSD for Win7 + a few games....60gb should be max size, you can probably get a good one for $200, err $320 NZ....likethis 40gb SSD from OCZ

Other than that, great rig, im jealous.
I definitely agree. I just built a new computer and bought 2xSSDs in raid 0 and it is amazingly fast. If you go raid do some research because you need to make sure they have garbage control since you lose out on TRIM. I know all OCZ SSDs support it with firmware updates, but I'm not sure who else. If you don't go with an SSD, then you should at least go with 2x SpinPoints or WD Blacks in raid 0 imo. You will notice a nice speed boost and better performance.

Im planning on that in the near future, because with that beasty setup the only thing holding me back is the HDD read/write speeds

Change heatsink to Venomous X or Corsair H50.

Everything else is perfect.
