Hey all,

All right, so I really like my system...it's fast and does everything I need it to. However, I'm feeling the upgrade bug, and since I have recently sold all of my math books (done with the degree! win!), I have quite a bit of amazon credit (about $700).

Is there anything worthwhile I can do with my system for about $700, or should I just hang on to the money for the future?

Possible ideas:

1. 3D Vision...monitor + glasses for $500
2. Core i7 970 + LGA 1366 mobo for about $800
3. Dual GTX 570s for about $700.
4. Third GTX 470 + New PSU for about $400

Are any of these paths justified? Or should I just keep this money and use it towards just a badass new system in a few years?

For SNB-E or BD?

2,3, and 4 are all not worth it, IMO.
1 is the only thing that is worth it right now, but then again, I'd say hold. Wait till SNB-E.
