Asus p7p55D-pro

Hitachi 2x2TB drives 7200rpm
GPU - EVGA 660 SUperclocked edition (non TI) ---will SLI it soon

Its hard for me to jusify upgrades outside of video cards but i am open to suggestions. Is it time to upgrade or push it for another year or 2

Unless you are seeing CPU bottlenecks in games (which I doubt you are), there is really no reason to upgrade your platform. The only criticism I have is that your power supply is absolute overkill, even if you SLI the 660. What model is that PSU?
