Should I add to my build?

Hey guys!

So I just built this computer like 2 weeks ago and it seems to work really well! I can run Battlefield 3 singleplayer on ultra without a problem and any other game the computer laughs at.

My specs are:

RAM - G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
DVD Drive - ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
Cooler - CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Mobo - ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
PSU - CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W
CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K
Case - Corsair Obsidian Series 650D
GPU - Asus GTX 680

I know the HDD is SATA 2 and not 3 but the price difference between them at the time was $50.00 which would have made the HDD $200.00 and I didnt have the money at the time. So my question to you guys is, is there anything other than a SATA 3 HDD and/or SSD that I can add to this computer to make it better without spending hundreds of dollars and is it worth it? If not, should i get an SSD or a better HDD?

Thanks in advanced :D

  1. You haven't listed your GPU.

    An SSD is well worth the money for a boot drive. I recommend the Crucial M4.
  2. Added, Sorry about that!
  3. No worries ;). Nice system you have there.

    Crucial M4

    Use the SSD as your boot drive with windows installed, and use your Western Digital 1TB HDD for games and storage etc.

    An SSD is the best thing you can add to your system.
