New setup running great, might add another ram kit and a solid state drive in the near future.

Click on description for link.

Specs:

Mobo - MSI Z77A-G45 Intel 7 Series

Processor - Intel Core i5-3570K BX806237i53570K Processor - Quad Core

Ram - Kingston HyperX Red KHX13C9B1RK2/8 8GB Memory Module Kit

Video Card - EVGA GeForce GTX 660

DVD Drive - LG 24X DVD Burner

Power Supply - Ultra LSP750 750-Watt Power Supply

Case - Ultra Gladiator Mid-Tower Case


The mobo has an overclocking feature called OC Genie for novices at overclocking that I may give a try sometime and see how it works, pretty happy with how well it's running now. What do you guys think?

The SSD will be the biggest performance enhancer you can make to a rig. It will affect the performance of every piece of hardware on your computer.
I would highly recommend getting one, either a 120 or 240 Gb. Load only the programs you want to run on it....put everything else on the HDD.
Prices will probably begin to drop after Aug or Sept.
When I installed mine it was a totally new experience, and was actually very exciting to turn it on...everything responded so much faster.
Remember, more free space on your SSD means better performance. So just load the games you really want or frequently play. And put all the other crap on a HDD, especially steam...Steam will eat space in a hurry.
I plan on getting another OCZ Agility 4 in the near future and setting them in RAID.

just picked up a samsung 840 500gb ssd, and it's awesome. newegg has them for sub 300 now, but if you catch a sale you can pick one up for around 200 bones.

Once you go ssd, you won't go back.

I love my SSD, I have an OCZ like shelt. There are other methods of greatly improving IOPS (input/output per second) than just SSD, the cheapest is probably low level raids on SATA, but there is also Hybrids, RAID-Hybrids, etc.. Anyway, just saying that if going all SSD is too expensive and you still want a good boon to IOPS, you may want to consider RAID or Hybrids. 500GB hybrid for $99 Click Here
