What would you guys suggest after looking at my specs? I think I want to wait before upgrading my CPU to a quad core until Peryn comes.

Maybe a nice watercooling setup? 1KW PSU? What do you guys think?

Honestly, with your system, a nice water cooling setup will cost you maybe $500, and I would just invest the rest...

I would wait for the "Penryn".
According to Intel's propaganda :) it should have "Remarkable performance improvements" (http://www.intel.com/technology/architecture/45nm_core2/index.htm).
The water cooling sure won't get you that plus Penryn 45nm process technology might not have such a big need for watercooling.

Or invest the $1000 in AMD shares :), you have pretty good system already.:thumbsup:

Get two hookers and a limousine.

Oh wait...you're in the hardware section.

Get some RAM ($165) and spend the rest on hookers you can impress with the RAM.

You'll thank me later. ;)

I would have to agree you already have an excellent system. Get the hookers!

Buy one of those E3 babes and dress her up as your favorite game character. Then take her back to your place and make her stand there and act out every scene just as it's happening on your monitor as you're playing games.

Then after that's done, tell her the 1,000$ was good for more than that and you require some "extra attention"...
