what should i upgrade to a ssd? new graphics card more ram new cpu i dont really know what would give me the best performance im kinda weary of a ssd because i cant justify spending 100s on a drive that only has 200gb where i can buy a 2t for $100 ... so maybe a phenom II x6? or a new hard drive for more movies? 4 more gbs of ram what do you all recommend.
AMD Athlon II X4 630 (3.36GHz)
I agree with the above. Your graphics cards are the bottleneck right now, but you're right on the cusp of being better off waiting for the next generation of graphics card over buying buying the most expensive one you can find without getting worthy results.

This is another epic..... I must say....
You really need to get the the System 32 back into your head before posting such a reply..... we're here to help people get their rigs working not wreck them.....
I notice my system is always about 50-80% cpu usage without playing games. thats running ybh(program runs like 20 myspace mobster accounts each) i run 2-3 of these then normal stuff spybot tea timer, avg, yahoo instant messenger, Firefox. the ybhs take about 22-25% cpu each so there a big drain so maybe a cpu upgrade but are the phenoms even worth it will it be a significant boost? im looking for at least 30% performance increase to justify spending.
I would think a Phenom 955@ stock will give around a 10% boost if you get a 212+ and overclock to around 3.8-4GHz then you would get nearer the 30% you want in normal usage but for gaming the money is much better spent on a GPU.
