Hey guys, first time posting here hope it's in the right place.

Anyway, I was thinking of upgrading my current computer and I was wondering if you guys had any opinions on what I should upgrade. The computer is used only for gaming and some casual web browsing. I have allocated myself $800 to spend on any upgrades.

My current specs include:

CPU: i7 930 3.8ghz OC

Motherboard: Asus P6T SE

RAM: Corsair Dominator 12gb (3x4) CMP12GX3M3A1600C9

Graphics Card: Sapphire HD 6870 slight OC

HDD: WD Caviar Green 500GB


Case: Cooler Master Haf 932

I'm just looking for any opinions on what to upgrade, will be buying any new parts at a computer store near me, although looking at newegg the prices are very similar, so using that site as a gauge on the prices of any suggestions.

For gaming, theres no reason to ditch the CPU. Honestly, I'd just toss a GTX 670 in it and call it a day. Or you could just add a second 6870. Up to you.

Maybe a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Crucial M4's are decent.
