    Hi Guys,

    I seem to have an upgrade cold at the minute and keep having urges to buy more and more hardware.. My spec is in my sig, recently purchased a 5970 and 5870 trifire and an ssd. Very happy but want more, my case is looking a bit battered now acctually and cud do with a new one too, if you had 400-500 what would you change to my spec, be it hardware or cosmetics.

    Ta Guys

    Personally, I quite like the Corsair 800D or the Haf 932.

    I don't think you could improve on that setup at all. Treat yourself to a track day or have a meal out somewhere with friends/family etc.

    Failing that, buy a new case then send the remains of the money to me :p

    edit. I suppose you could get a bigger SSD aswell. Or get yourself some more monitors for eyefinity.

    Water cooling - maybe just a simple corsair H50, then get that CPU up around 4.2 :)

    Got a nice cound card?

    edit: or even a sound card:rolleyes:

    Im acctually selling my monitors i was using for eyefinity. It's not very good. Im happier with a big monitor / reasonable resolution.

    Maybe a SSD and a case then, is the HAF 932 bigger than my antec 1200?
