For me personally the best performance boost I've had in years is from the SSD I installed as a boot drive.

you sir have a world of knowledge

Definitely yes. SSD for sure. Major difference in boot time and application startup. Everything on an SSD is dramatically faster than HDD.

Thanks guys, I'm seriously considering that Samsung Monitor, I would love a new 6950 as the mildly OC'd one I have now maxes out BF3 at 1080p with an average 40fps....not bad. I do want another SSD, I just got a Corsair Force GT as a boot drive, although it took me a while to learn how to make windows default save to the other one, and I still don't have it completely working the way I want it to, its only a 120gb boot drive. I definitely want fans (Preferably look cool thumb.gif ) and If anyone could tell me anything else I'm missing that would be great, It is still my first build. Sound card? Cool gadgets like voice control? WebCam? Mouse? LCD optical display? SUGGEST AWAY

sound cards are great. Check out the Asus Xonar STX. it's my favorite sound card I've owned so far. You'll want a nice pair of speakers or headphones to go with it, though.

Here's a good list for $700-

Another 6950
Xonar STX
Nice 2.1 Speakers/ Headphones

If you already have a 120gb SSD then those are the components I would get.

Sweet assed mouse and keyboard are always nice if you don't already have them. A NAS to plug into your router is awesome. I have a 4G NETGEAR ReadyNAS with two 2G hard drives in a RAID1 so they mirror each other. It's great for backing up stuff, and it also streams to PS3 and Xbox pretty effortlessly. Just enable the feature and it works.

I think my next upgrade, if I ever get around to it, will be the 120Hz monitor. My other two monitors are 27", so to match them I'll need a 27" which is pretty darned pricy right now, and I'd also have to figure out how to mount 3 27" monitors on my rather smallish desk. May have to buy some expensive monitor mounting arms.

I don't know if anyone here plays Guild Wars, but I purchased a second SSD and set them up as a RAID0. (I wouldn't do this if I was using SATA III SSDs, these are both SATA II). The performance increase was significant, and it doubles the size of my boot drive. Since I didn't need 120G for a boot drive, I created two volumes and use one for a couple of games I play a lot. Guild Wars is one of them. When I had it installed on a hard drive, even with two HD6970 (ish) in CFX I would get these delays as I panned around in a town. Man, once I put this game on the SSD volume I couldn't believe the performance difference. No more delays, almost instant loading between towns. Perfect performance in every way with everything turned up all the way.

Gotta love those SSDs.

Add my kitchen table PC!

Bought the case locally. The rest on Newegg...

Cables looks better in person. I need to work more on those. I'll have to open the case soon anyways. Oh yeah. Laughable stock cooling.

I call that "cable puke".

Almost there, the vendor still owes me the big radiator, so, I'm stuck with stock cooling for a while...

Not-so-exiting looks, but I like it!
