Your system is appr. like mine except I have a SSD that gives me a 7.9 score there. I think that for a nice system like this a SSD is a must. They are cheap these days. You can get a 256GB model for under $100 and a 500GB model for under $200. Subscribe to the newegg.com feed. then you will know when the SSDs are on special offer. Sometimes there are good prices at Amazon too.

You can also follow this thread on this forum. The guys always post the best deals of the day there. Have to go to the last page to be up-to-date.
