You should be able to get a little more OC out of your CPU, not that it would affect your (gaming?) performance too terribly much. I'd suggest stacking a few more 6950s in there.

Get a second 6950 and crossfire them.

Up your CPU overclock to 4.6GHz.

You should be able to do this easily by accessing the AI Tuner option in your BIOS.

All this "high end" gear and using a 20" monitor?

unless the 20" dell is a very high quality display i'd suggest getting at least a 21-22" 1920x1080 display.
may be get a z68 motherboard with pcie 3.0 support e.g. the asrock z68 extreme3 gen3.

Thanks for the suggestions, 20" is fine, not great, like I said, I'm buying 6monitors, Probably the ve258q. And I need a new case, and my processor isn't staying cool.
