    Default If you could change one thing about your system...

    What would it be? What is the weakest link in your machine? What are you just plain unsatisfied with?

    For me it has to be the GPUs. I have three GTX 260s here and they are all two generations behind the times. I set my wife up with GTX 460s, but skipped an upgrade for myself. And now another generation is on the horizon. Sigh.

    You?

    My RAM, 4gb of ripjaws, which I believe are the component preventing me from having a stable overclock on my 2500k.

    My GPUS, 2 gtx 570s, while effing incredible, don't perform too well with my recently upgraded 3 monitor setup, hahah.

    For me it will be a 30" dell ultrasharp series. I have my 2nd GTX580 on the way and i think it will be a waste if i dont upgrade to a 27" or 30"

    This surprises me. What resolution are you running across them? Or are they set up as separate desktops?

    Any experience with 3D or would it be your first?
