Help me improve my X79 build

I currently have the following but looking to improve it without spending too much. Upgrading CPU and GPU's is not possible.

GPU: 2x GTX 670 SLI

Memories: 4x 2GB Corsair Vengeance Performance 1600Mhz
HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14
SSD: 128GB Corsair m4
PSU: 850W Corsair TX850
Case: HAF X

  1. easiest way to improve that would be to buy socket 1155 system and save a lot of money you appear to be throwing away .....assuming its just a gaming rig
  2. He already owns it. Get a cpu cooler and OC the cpu. D-14 or H100.

  3. This has the whiff of a troll post.
  4. You could get a higher capacity SSD of a better model. For example, a 256GB Samsung 830. I'd also choose a WEstern Digital hard drive over a Seagate hard drive, at least with consumer drivers. I keep hearing that Seagate has gone down in reliability lately lately, supposedly related to them taking over Maxtor. A new Western Digital Caviar Blue or Black might be better.

    Also, do you have a link to the memory that you're buying? I'd like to get a good look at it. 2GB memory module might be only one-sided and that means slightly inferior interleaving performance. It's not a big deal at all, but I though that you might care if you're going for a computer that is this high end. Also, as another recommended, I'd get a good after-market cooler and overclock the CPU.
