I would say possibly your hard drive (not listed) or add a SSD. I would recommend either the Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB or Seagate 7200.12 500GB hard drives. Both of these drives have 500GB Single Platters, which makes them pretty much as fast as the WD VRaptors for 1/4 the price. SSD's... well, I'm sure you know they are the fastest things out!
CP-850 costing you $84 versus $110 (after $10 MIR) for the Corsair TX
You could move up to the Corsair HX850 (Also a 10.0 from jonny) but that's $180
However.....compared with what you have, these "upgrades" would offer only marginal improvements. So if I was gonna do anything, I'd wait until about 2 months fermi arrives and see how the market settles out, then invest in some GFX cards.....other than that, the Vertex 2 hits next month, see what that does to SSD prices and consider one of those.
You have linked the two hard drives (minus the open box version of the Samsung... which is kind of fun to me, since an OEM doesn't come with a box ). They are both about 1/4 of the WD VRaptor 300GB or around 1/3 the price of the WD VRaptor 150GB. With you having the WD 1TB Black, I won't say it is worth the upgrade to either of those drives.
