Its all pretty good but an upgrade to a new graphics card will help your rig excel as it is by far the weakest component imo

Graphics card, SSD, Windows 7, and more monitors if you're into that kind of thing. Why are you on Vista? You have a beast right there, though.

Your rig is pretty similar to mine right now. You have a GTX 280 and I had SLI 8800GTS512 cards. Performance is probably about the same between the two. If I was you, I would upgrade my grahics card. I just ordered a GTX 570 Superclocked that will arrive on thursday, that should get my system up and running to current generation specs. Other then that, I probably would reccomend a solid state drive maybe.

Kill the Vista demon residing on your HDD, maybe pick up an SSD and use your old GFX card as the physics slave to a nice new GTX 570 or 580!

Windows 7, GPU and SSD. Aside from that, looks solid.

Do you really need 12GB ram? I'm usually doing loads of video/audio/raw photo editing, which is why I'm on the 12GB bandwagon. If you're on the same boat as I am, then forget I mentioned it. lol.

I'm definitely upgrading the video card, but I'm just not sure to what. I'm leaning towards the GTX 595 if it comes out, and then maybe the Kepler after that. Or should I just wait for Kepler?

I was thinking about getting Win 7 as well, but I'm not sure, I like Vista a lot. Is it a lot better?

I think I'll wait a while before getting an SSD, they're still a bit pricey imo and the technology's still a little young from what I imagine.

Oh, and I've got 12 gigs cause when I originally bought the system, the major parts came in a bundle.
