Hi all,

I was wondering what your recommendations are for upgrading my current system. I am only looking to spend $100-$300 so am sort of looking for the most bang for my buck. My guess is that my best two options are to swap in an SSD or buy a matching 6850 and crossfire it with my existing one. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

first of all, there doesnt seem anything wrong with your build. id first get a small SSD to be used as a boot drive and you should just overclock the video card

I agree ^ unless you are experiencing performance issues in some games? Why are you looking to upgrade?

Get an SSD. 128gb Crucial.

overclocking the 955 is also a great idea. just make sure that you have proper cooling
