So I just built a new rig and I'm already trying to decide what to do next with it. Let me know what you think and any ideas you have.

Case: Antec 1200
Power Supply: Kingwin MACH 1 1000W
CPU: i7 920 @ 3.6GHz
CPU Cooler: Rosewill FORT120
Motherboard: ASUS P6T Deluxe v2
RAM: Kingston HyperX 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3200
Harddrive 1: Western Digital 7,200 RPM 1TB Cavier Green
Harddrive 2: SUPER TALENT MasterDrive SX 128 GB SATA II SSD
SSD Bay: SNT Rack
Video Cards: 2x XFX HD5870
Monitor: ASUS 24" HD

I'd like to raid both my SSD and my HDD in a raid 0. Not sure what else to do except save for a new CPU?

To be honest with you... there really isn't anything else you need to do! Your system is GREAT!! [:jaydeejohn:5] [:mousemonkey:1] as it is and throwing extra money into it by setting up RAID's won't give you the boost in performance enought to justify the additional cost.

If you want to do something else because you have the "itch" or cash... I recommend looking to build a lower end AM3 or i7 750 build to fill your upgrade needs. Sell the PC and continue the cycle!

Just my thoughts... [:mousemonkey]

Don't both setting up Raid 0. You could get another monitor. I've got two right now and will soon be upgrading to three.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll probably look into modding my own custom case, as well as a 2nd monitor. Appreciate it.
