Does that mean for my system, I've pretty much done all that can be done?

Are you really not happy with the performance?

Oh it performs fine... I guess.

I was just curious if I had done all the normal stuff to tweak it.
If I was better performance, I can always install a SSD

You should get a better OC with that setup but nothings a lock, if you get more ram it might hold back your OC, you do not need it. It's the middle of the night and I have to vote in the AM, please post your specs, all of your hardware. Power supply and cooling too......

Kbrady1979 gave you some good advice, take it.

It performs way better than my last computer running XP Pro, but I had it rebuilt with a new mobo running an AMD quad 4 processor and it's almost as fast and this computer.

So, I think now that I've got it all reset to the OC that it came with from the manufacturer who builds custom performance PCs... I think the only thing I might consider further is an SSD as that will make it faster without too much hassle.

I'm just going to wait a bit as they are just now getting these things to where they are reliable long term. Just cause there is a software program that claims the SSD is healthy and has 8 years left on it doesn't make it so.

This technology is really evolving now that SSD's have become very popular. This means alot more money is being thrown at SSD research and development which is going to enhance the quality as SSDs go mainstream.

So, maybe this time next year I'll do a little research on the advancements made from till then with SSD technology and make a decision then.

Meanwhile, I can't complain about what I have now at all... In order to get the performance some of the big time gamers are getting, I'd need to build a whole new system anyway, so I'll just be happy with what I have... even though that's so not politically correct as it involves no whining and complaining cause somebody else has something faster than I do

Overclocking Tears...

Agressive overclocking is great - as long as you a) don't have valuable data, b) Can simply reload your OS and games without a lot of pain, c) understand that raid mirrors Do NOT protect you from overclocking screwups! Overclocking as much as possible is great for gamerz, but idiotic for business! Your risk your mission-critical data in a scenario that will cause you pain, and perhaps the loss of your business.
Mirrors insure that the data written to one or more HDD/SDDs are identical. But if the data is screwed up or flaky coming out of RAM, it will be mirrored to both drives, and they will BOTH have bad data. If you think a mirror is your backup plan, never overclock. Not any, not ever!
An old buddy called (I worked with him at Intel), asking for help to recover some 20,000+ source files from some free-lance consulting projects he was working on. He thought the mirror would be a good backup, and started pushing up the clock speed. Now he could only read 2,500+ files, the rest were corrupted beyond recognition. Sadly I had to tell him the painful truth. They are gone forever. If it is written bad (due to marginal conditions caused by overclocking), mirrored or not, it is gone forever.
Gamers don't care about this or long CPU life, because they will get a new Mobo and CPU in six months anyway. Software developers should know better, however.
