I'm impressed. Someone who wants to upgrade and actually considers one of the most important parts of a good and reliable build - the power supply. Great choice on that Corsair unit!

 

I think the biggest opportunity for upgrades are with your hard drive (go SSD), the memory (add another 4Gb) and video card (maybe add another GTS 450 for some SLi loving).

 

Just those small changes would make a world of difference in the performance of your rig :)

Aaa thanks for suggestions! That was pretty much my next line of thinking a SSD Drive just the price! Does the Asus P7P55D-E LX support SLI & Two graphics cards? Sorry pretty new to all this!

No, that motherboard doesn't. It only has a single PCIe slot :(
