A new CPU will take care of that sort of stuff. I'll second the i7-4790k if you have the funds.

Thank you for your reply !

How do I improve the appearance of the "Mundane" everyday appearance ?

I have just seen the reply from Br Ha
This has to be my next step which still leaves me in the quandary of which case to do the new build in ?
Despite the cost and awesome weight, I am still attracted by the great practicality of the Silverstone FT02. I would almost certainly under use it, but it would solve a lot of problems permanently.

Better CPU, motherboard and memory. Right now your motherboard is limiting the effectiveness of your SSD drive.

Yes, I am aware of that. My motherboard is just a SATA II set up. When I installed my new GPU earlier today my WEI went from 4.4 to 7.1. Previously everything had been 7.1 except the graphics side of things which were very poor indeed. Now it is all 7.1 with the two graphics readings being on 7.9 !
What you say about CPU, memory, and motherboard rings true. I think that I am going to go with the Silverstone FT02, and right or wrong I will build by new PC a component at a time. Which when you consider how we are updating all the time, it's what we all do anyway.
