I think my build has easily reached the stage where the only feasible upgrade would be an ssd. If you've heard of the term that the top 20% of any given product will generally offer minimal performance increase at an exponentially increasing cost? I believe this to be quite true. My hardware isn't premium gear or nothing but I don't play any games where my 7950 with a little overclock wont cope just fine. On top of this I never run out of ram, and my motherboard and cpu are great performers.
I'd like to get an ssd, but I want the best (non-literally), which comes with a cost. What are the good ssds out there? Intel 520s are meant to be the fastest, but they aren't cheap.
Failing that, I am very keen to do some more visual stuff, some nice fans, maybe some lighting..I really should be saving but I've never been very good at that :P What are good lighting solutions? I had my eye on some Bitfenix Alchemy connect kits, they offer great light, but I can't find a single place in New Zealand with stock
