Get an ASUS motherboard and a Q6600 CPU... right now you are bottle necking the graphics card. Also get a Western Digital HDD. They are the best and have the least amount of problems. Everyone who gets Samsung, Seagate, Hitachi, or Maxitor always ends up regretting it.

A Q6600 is old, hot and slower than an E7500 in most games.

All HDD brands have failures. I had no issues with several Maxtor drives.
