Hey you guys, I recently upgraded my rig and I wanted some opinions on it so I thought where else better than to ask here =]

Coolermaster Storm Sniper Case - 3 Force Blue 200mm fans - 120mm blue led back - 140mm Scythe bottom

Coolermaster UCP Ultimate 1100w

Asus Xonar Dx Soundcard

Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.06ghz - Thermalright True Black Push/Pull setup

Xfx 4870x2 2gb

Western Digital Caviar Black 640gb

DFI Lanparty x58 UT

G.SKill Trident (lol the gum) 3x2gb DDR3 2000 - At 2000mhz

BenQ E2400HD 24inch 1920x1080

Vista 64bit Home Premium / Windows 7 upgrade when released.



Well thats pretty much my current system, if there is anything you would change with this build please let me know.
I am extremely competitive so i'll also list my peripherals :

Steelseries 5h v2 headset
Steelseries 7g Keyboard
Logitech G9x Mouse / Razer Destructor mousepad
Logitech G13 Gamepad


Thanks! please rate my system from 1 (terrible) to 10 (great) and also let me know if theres a problem with my build or if theres anything you'd change.

Your rig is ok. I would just push the cpu a little higher, like 3.5ghz. With full hd, it's making a huge difference.

Oh thanks, I'll move it up to 3.5 soon, I'm still on vacation xD
What clock speed would it have to be at for 4870x2 crossfire to prevent bottle necking?

You could push it a little but i guess it wouldnt make much difference. You have to check the temperatures and measure yourself what gain you have.

Very solid system... I would recommend going to at least 3.6 GHz if temps/system permit, which is the "sweet spot" for processors speeds, anything over that you really don't see much gain in real-world performance.

Your next steps after that to gain performance is to add a SSD to increase HDD performance more and upgrade to the ATI 5000 series cards in October for better performance.

I don't see you really needing to add or change anything within the next 9 to 12 months, which by then the 4870x2 may start to be your bottleneck in games... believe it or not with more and more DX11 games released by that time.

Ah okay, so

First - OC CPU to 3.6ghz

Second - Get an SSD, Which would you recommend? ( im not as rich as i may sound lol )

Its hard to believe a 4870x2 will actually be a bottleneck for games lol.

Corsair P128 (CMFSSD-128GBG2D) 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Retail

or

OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Retail

You'll need this for either one... ICY DOCK MB882SP-1S-1B 2.5" to 3.5" SSD & SATA Hard Drive Converter - Black - Retail

edit: Yeah.... at one time I thought it would be hard to believe my 8800GT would be a bottleneck too... but with time... all that were once great... become obsolete!! :D
