No, you do not have a wellbalanced enthusiast system in 2011. I'm awaiting my Sandybridge, but even my Q9650@4GHz is more wellbalanced than your system in total. My system will feel much faster since it is using SSD's.
That is truthful, an ssd will smash a mechanical drive anyday. I don't deny that but I will get better results in CPU and GPU benchmarks then you will. So in my book that makes my system better then yours.
My system is more well balanced because I don't have a bleeding edge, top of the line, enthusiast computer. I have a middle end computer and everything about it is, middle of the road.
You want to talk about enthusiast and are getting 1155 LOL even a cat can overclock SB I am waiting for LGA 2011 to build my "enthusiast" grade computer not this mainstream 1155 socket you talk about.
