I'd sell half of everything you have, and would still have a top performing 3 or 4 year rig lol.

I am still using a Core 2 Quad Q9550 with 4870 1GB CF... You computer is massive overkill. IMO the majority of games run fine with 4870 1gb CF, so your beyond anything actually required nowadays.

Just to put it into perspective, I would wait 2 years FOR that rig. But really, either put that rig to some serious folding or push Surround and actually make those 580's work.

Hmm well then either 3x monitor like other said, or get yourself a nice sound system and maybe if you want a HDD/SSD with more space.
