Unless the parts don't fit the case or cable management is so bad that its overheating your rig, I don't see any reason to upgrade it. This way you can max out on the GPU and have the nicest graphics you can afford. :D

Might want to see what happens with card prices this week if the 670 GTX hits the streets this Thursday as rumor implies.

Will hopefully give you more options if you are hard stuck at $400.

Nvidia, right now none. You have to wait for the newer 6xx series to come out. Unless you want to go all the way to the gtx 680.

As far as I know there is no price range for it yet. I'm guessing it would be right up there with the 7870 or 7950.

Yeah apparently somehow a ton of aussis bought gtx670s and apparently the 670 beats AMDs whole lineup right now....

I like the Thermaltake FRIO cooler.

I think you would probably get a good deal on a 580 now with the 6 series comin out.
