running a core i7950
dual 4870x2's 2 gig each
6 gig of ram
1 tb 7200 rpm sata hd
23" monitor..
its actually an alienware system recieved as a gift back in july.

is there anything that I should upgrade here to play ANY game currently on the market or due out in 2010? to play the same with max settings on everything?

I got a new lcd acer 23 inch capable of that high enough of a resultion to max out with 2 graphics cards?

If you want to work your cards buy a 2560x1600 30" monitor.

If you're desperate to upgrade, add an SSD (Intel or one with an Indilinx controller) and put your OS on it will speed up boot times and loading programs. That said, the rest of your system is already one of the best you can get, so sit back and enjoy it - you won't need to upgrade anything for a while yet.
