The choices are:
1) Go SLI
2) Get a second HP 23" like your first
3) Double your ram

To me I would add the HP while you can get a similar monitor. Watch for the others to hit the sales bins and I would grab what ever hits the bin first. To me I'm not sure you'll see huge gains from 32 gb of ram unless your setting up a huge ram drive. So monitor first, SLI next and Ram last unless sales bins force a revision !

I'm amazed you listed ram last

Get the 660 for SLI

Edit

Wait linnemeyerhere has a great point on the monitor

Edit again, go SLI...and send me the code for Last Light

What are you wanting your PC to do that it won't already?

Pull the air cooler and replace with a proper 240 mm or squeeze a 280 mm closed loop in and get the 4.0 OC up to 4.6 or higher !

You don't need 32GB of RAM, and unless your current video card doesn't play the games you want, another one won't help. I would suggest upgrading your monitor to a high end IPS/PLS panel monitor.

Go sli then add two more 23" monitors for surround.


Forget the Ram. What you've got is plenty unless you are maxing it out already. Otherwise it makes zero difference.

You guys are supposed to help me, not kick my teeth in LOL

But seriously, kbrad you`re right, this pc is runnin great so it`s a tough choice. Metro is lookin awesome on high settings, so no problems there.

Linny I was lookin at this 240 rad.

NZXT RL-KRX60-01 280mm Ultra Performance Liquid CPU Cooler - Newegg.com

I really want to get a matching set of 23" monitors, at least then I`ll have 2 23`s and a 19 and the Bravia, when I want to use it.

But then I think I should get the 2nd 660, dam what to do, what to do
