Requesting Advise regarding OverAll PC performance & 3D

I recently built this System and was confused regarding its performance Benchmarks. Also have some queries regarding some upgrades for which i need your best supporting advise.Hence requesting your able Guidance in this regards. Thanks in advance.

Below are my PC (screen shots attached) specs & facts related to it.
OS: Genuine Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Retail Build: 6.1.7600
Processor: AMD Phenon II X2 550 BE 3.1 Ghz(Unlocked to X4 B50)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA Ma785GM US2H
RAM: 8GB 800 Mhz Dynet
Graphics Card: Saphire 1GB DDR5 ATI Radeon 5850
Hard Drive(s): 2x320GB WD Cavear Blue Raid 0 Primary
1TB WD Caviar Green 5400 RPM for Data
1TB Seagate Free Agent 7200 RPm External for Data
DVD Drive(s): 2x22X LG DVDRW
PSU: Corsair 750W HX Semi Modular
CPU Cooling: Corsair H50 Hydro with Push Pull.
Case: Cooler Master Elite 310 with side panel
Display: Samsung 17"
Keyboard: Logitech
Mouse: Logitech
Webcam: Microsoft Life cam VX1000
Fans: 2 120MM Cooler Master Fans for Corsair H50
2 120MM Cooler Master LED Fans for side & front Ventilation
Lights: 2 Sunbeam Blue CCFL
Internet Speed: 1.3 MBPS
Antivirus: Kaspersky 2010

Now I ran the 3DMark vantage and attached is the screen shot.
I scored P12664(CPU-10581 & GPU- 13553) without OC.
I scored P12701(CPU-10653 & GPU- 13571) with OC 3.4 GHZ.
Also without OC the temperature idles at 38-39 Degrees System & 35-38 Degrees CPU
and on 100 % Load it stays at 41 Degrees System & 53 Degrees.

* Tested Prime 95 for 7 Hours - Passed
Did Memtest - Passed
While I OCing it the temperature idles at 45 Degrees System & 48 Degrees CPU
and on 100 % Load it stays at 49-50 Degrees System & 63-65 Degrees CPU.
* Tested Prime 95 for 3.5 Hours - Passed
Did Memtest - Passed

Now my question are:
1. what can i do to further Increase the 3DMark Scores here.
2. what can i do to bring down the temps on both system level & CPU level
3. Kindly advise a good Monitor to complement my RIG
4. As you might have seen the cable cluttering, would Corsair 800D case help reduce temp?
5. I am considering buying an Intel X25M 160 GB SSD, need your take on that.
6. Why is the GPU Clock & Default Clock values differ as previously i have seen them being same.
My WEI Scores:-
CPU - 7.3 after OC -7.4
Ram - 7.3 after OC -7.4
Graphics - 7.7
Gaming Graphics - 7.7
Primary HDD - 5.9
Thanks a ton for your time and able guidance in advance.

Wow man, that's a killer rig. Honestly, I think you have everything covered from where I'm sitting. Does that light you have stuffed in there generate any heat? If so, you might want to consider tossing it. Who cares what it looks like if it cranks up your hardware core temps. I didn't see any front case fans in the photo. Do you have any? Let's face it, the biggest enemy computer hardware has is HEAT! Do whatever it takes to keep heat under control. 65 degrees celsius under load is a bit too high for my taste on the CPU. My main rig's CPU temp never goes over 60, or the computer will shutdown [BIOS setting]. I think the highest it's ever gone was 42. But the size of my OCZ heatsink is about the size of a Volkswagon.....LOL

Hey Mate, thanks a lot for taking out time to read my story ;-) well i missed on putting the front panel fan - sorry but yeah i do agree with your opinion, trying to figure out how to do it as i already have the proper cooler its just that i think i might need a big case like obsidian 800D from corsair. but its too expensive currently and also i have already spent much in the current one :-(
By the way that light is very cool mate, i dont think about that as a heat genereator as the temps are same when the lights are on or off.

Just a question: Do you have your Corsair cpu cooler fan sucking or blowing? I have the same cooler and I have two Radeon HD 4870s in CrossfireX and they put out some heat! I originally had the fan mounted in the back, as you do, and had the fan sucking as Corsair suggests. My problem was that the fan was sucking the hot exhaust air from the graphics cards. I had to mount the fan and radiator to one of the top fan mounts. That would pose a problem for you as your power supply is top mounted--but it would also be a moot point if you are not having any problem with the fan sucking the exhaust air from your graphics card.

Anyway, nice setup.

(I just saw your pictur in detail and you can't mount your power supply at the bottom.)

Thanks Mate for your exper advise, yeah that is why i asked if the 800 D, so there is my answer that i "should buy" the 800D ;-)
Regarding the H50 i have it as corsair ( to suck in) and my GPU fan is down facing but still worth a try to do it the other way round (exhaust out).

Will check and let you know Big Bro Thanks again

The 800D is a beautiful case--but it carries a price tag on it as well. if you are looking for space, there are other options:

HAF 932 - Cooler Master
::: Zalman, leading the world of Quiet Computing Solutions :::

Those three cases can be had for less than $200 USD, while the 800D comes in at $300 ($299) USD.
