Change the monitor to something better.. I have never even heard of that make, and for TV's and monitors no name brands are nearly always bad.

Change the Hard Drives too and get 3 250GB 7200.10 Perpendicular Recording Barracuda's. They are much faster and better hard drives.

I would also personally change the PSU to a 620WT Corsair although yours is probably good enough for that rig, but the 700WT version of that wouldn't be bad either!

Also I would change the mouse to a MX 518 Logitech mouse or a G5.

One more thing.. the Q6600 and 2900XT will go down in price over time, especially the Q6600 it's price will go down by about £20 or more within a month, its demand at the moment is huge.

Up to you really, I'd sell it personally and build a cheaper rig with the money if you want another rig.

But if you really don't need another rig just sell it and keep all the money!

CPU E6420 @ 3.00Ghz - £80

Motherboard ASUS P5W DH Deluxe - £60

Memory 1x 1GB Elixir - £25

Graphics Card Radeon X1650 PRO 512MB - £30

Hard Drive Hitachi 200GB - Do not sell it

Sound Card CREATIVE Sound Blaster Audigy - £15

Power Supply GameXStream 700W - £50

Case Modded Coolermaster Cavalier - ?? Maybe £40 (Not sure about this)

These are all at second hand prices for ebay really... should be able to get £300 for it.. not much I know. The CPU, Power Supply and Motherboard are worth the most and everything else is really outdated.

If you want to wait for it, but the 680i and the P35 chipsets are both awesome anyways.
