I typically just use this for work stuff, but I occasionally play games like Starcraft II, MS FSX, Borderlands, Halo2 and a few others. It works fast and I really don't have any complaints about it, but I want to keep it updated.
What should my next upgrade be or should I wait a while longer before doing anything?

Wait. A c2q overclocked would help with games like SC2 in large battles, but if your performance is good enough now you shoudl wait for 6 months and let intel and AMD release their next generation of CPUs and ATIs next generation GPUs. At that point see what pricing is like.
I would have to agree with the above post. The computer you have now is fine. Just wait till next year and build another computer if you have the funds.
If you really need to upgrade now, I'd look at either another GTX 260 in SLI (if the PSU can handle it) or a GTX 460 (it runs Starcraft 2 very well). With a potential GTX 490 around the corner, the 460s could drop in price...
That samsung at 1920 x 1080 or higher resolution. You would benefit from stronger GPU as suggested above.
I also dont think an upgrade is a good idea . Wait for newer technology
But your set up is nuts . You have data on a RAID 0 array making data loss at least twice as likely , and you have programs on a relatively slow 400 gig single drive
Sorry, meant raid 1 for the data files. The 400gb drive is for programs that are not frequently used. I keep office and other stuff like that on that drive.
I was kind of thinking about getting another 260, but the 460's are only a few bucks more. I guess I will just sit tight on it for now.
With the 260, I can run SC2 at 1920x1200 at max settings with no lag or hesitation at all.
Thank you for the input.
Yup! I wanna say : I also agree with the others. No upgrade is necessary for your rig at this moment, just wait untill next year.
