Talking Next upgrade?

So anyway I got a new Core2 Quad 6600 and now a new 9800GTX to hold me off until I step up to whatever nvidia throws us next anytime soon. My question is there are 4 things that I am currently thinking about upgrading for a faster computer or going to Blueray. Now which out of the 3 or perhaps something I left out should I go for?

First my RAM I am currently using some 4GB Kingston DDR667 4x 1GB sticks and was thinking about going and getting the OCZ SLI-Ready Edition 4GB DDR800; the thing is would I see a increase in performance worth spending the $80.

Second thing is my motherboard. It’s an Intel DG965wh about a year and a half old. And no I am not going to get a SLI board. Love to have one but don’t want to spend that much money on another card.

Third just because I was thinking about getting a blue ray drive since there getting cheep and was thinking about picking up one for now $100

Forth a new sound card. But what kind is the question?

Anyway thanks for the advice.
Yeah I use a Mac Mini now....

Default Re: Next upgrade?

From what you said and what is in your Sig, I'd just get a BluRay drive.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4x4GB)
EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 760 2GB w/ EVGA ACX Cooler
MSI GTX 460 (Dedicated PhysX)
