I've only had the 7850 for 2-3 weeks... so it'd be a waste of money to replace it.

I could crossfire my GPU's... however i've heard bad things about doing that.

I wouldn't worry about crossfire.

Honestly, if you do competitive gaming, you might want to upgrade your mouse and keyboard. Your mouse is fine if you like it, but the keyboard only thinks it's for gaming - I'd get a mechanical keyboard. They're SERIOUSLY worth it, as much as it doesn't seem like it. (Cherry MX Brown FTW.)

Not that good at gaming lol. I don't do anything competitive, mouse is nice i think its 3500dpi with 11 buttons :)  I like it at least.

I'll look into the keyboard, haven't ever heard about mechanical keyboards.

You could upgrade your CPU to this Thermaltake CLP0575 This thing is possibly the best air CPU cooler on the market, also while looking sexy :koala:

And you could also upgrade your case fans to these here COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex 120mm case fans for better airflow.


Already have the Noctua NH-D14.

That cooler would be a downgrade from what i've seen.

Well, I'm all out of ideas. I'd just save your cash and use it to buy something new whenever you have to.

Yeah i really cant come up with anything either... I was thinking maybe a blu ray/burner drive... nut I dont really have use for one.

I was also thinking a sound card but I already have X11 Turtle beaches and the DD Surround sound adapter for them.

Get the PH-TC14PE instead, it's better than the NH-D14

Anyways, as to your build. you can go with a water cooling loop for around 150$ or more, depending on what you get.
Another monitor (Or 2), I personally can't stand just 1 monitor.
Uhmmmm, more ram to setup a ram disk?
A nice mic and/or keyboard.
A better desk or computer chair? lol


Okay, I've pretty much ran out of ideas.
