This is my current system...

Asus P6T Deluxe X58 S1366 ATX Mainboard w/Audio/2xGBLan/WiFi/FW

Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz 8M S1366 Processor

Coolermaster Hyper Z600 CPU Cooler for AM2/S775/S940

1 OCZ Platinum 6GB TC PC3-1333 DDR3 Memory Kit *3 Module Kit

2 WD Black 640GB 7200RPM 32MB 3.5" SATA Hard Drive

LG GH22LS30 22X SATA LightScribe DVD-RW Drive, Black,

2 BFG GF GTX260 OCX Max Core 896MB GDDR3 PCI 2.0 Video Card

Coolermaster Cosmos S 1100 Chassis, Black/Silver, NO PSU

OCZ Silencer 750Watt Quad ATX Power Supply,

Blue Scythe S-Flex 120mm SFF21E 1200rpm Case Fan

********************

I would like to upgrade the video cards to at least two 570 Ti's and double the ram, perhaps even get an SSD (which one?). Should I get the faster ram versus more of the same as the MB will support
(DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Hz Memory)

Will that power supply feed 2 570s? Should I upgrade the cpu as well?

I would appreciate any response's/suggestions, thanks in advance.

It seems to me the best upgrade would be a new graphics card and a new CPU. I don't know whether or not 2 GTX570s will bottle neck your CPU, but it might.

Also, you really don't need more RAM. You can buy another stick for 8GB of RAM if you wish.

How much money are you willing to spend on upgrades for your system?

I wanted to go to 12gigs for running VM's. I would spend 1500 on the upgrades I think. Thank you for responding.
