Thread Starter 
So as the title suggests I am upgrading my sig rig, but only once i get a flow of cash. This is my build so far, but I am not sure is i should go x6 or not, I think it is kinda a waste....but tell me otherwise if u think so....

-AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edtion (already own)
-Asus Crosshair IV Formula
-Team Elite 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3/1600 (already own 4GB)
-2 x Asus Radeon HD 5850 in CFX (already own 1)
-Intel X25-M 80GB
-Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB
-LG DVD Burner (already own)
-Antec TruePower New 750W
-Lian Li Lancool PC-K58W
-Corsair H50 (already own) + 2 x Cooler master 120mm Silent Fans
-Fan Controller w/ LCD Pannel (already own)

Please give me suggestions for alternative parts!

Looks good, but why are you getting a Velociraptor and a SSD? Just get the SSD then have 2x640GB Caviar blacks in Raid 0 for the rest. You can short stroke them if you want to get more speed.

Other than that it looks good.

If you already have a 965, the only way to go is hexacore... and yes, I would for sure...

Looks good, get Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1800rpm for the H50, don't get a Raptor, SSD is a good choice though
