I'm surprised nobody has said SSD, not that I think that's your best option, just surprised.

Where do you feel your system is lacking? If you game a lot then I agree with the monitor/gpu upgrade.

SSD would be nice, but in this instance, a new monitor or a new GPU would be ahead of it.



yeah it will fit in your case.

Or, what if i do what the guy said and go crazy with a monitor? I guess the one part that im lacking is a good monitor. This one has an extreme yellow tint, and i also use it as a tv monitor. When i turn it on, it also makes weird buzzing noises for about 10 minutes. But, if i get a monitor, wouldnt playing at 19x10 drop my frame rates in half? Also i read that the gtx 460 is about a 10% increase in performance vs the 260
