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

You haven't listed your GPU.

An SSD is well worth the money for a boot drive. I recommend the Crucial M4.
