    Upgrading My PC

    Due to the recent event with my pc posted HERE I decided that if I have to redo the drives I will just upgrade what I can, so, I would like to read some feed back from all that can help. My current config is what you see in my sig and I want to upgrade what I can for now. Here is what I came up with so far.


    Graphic Card

    Motherboard

    Power Supply
    If I do not have to upgrade then I will not

    CPU

    SSD


    I am hoping I can still use my existing ram for now until I am able to afford to upgrade....
    MB - Asus P6X58D
    CPU - Intel i7 930 Corsair H70
    MEM - Corsair 3x2gb 1600
    HD - OCZ Vertex 60gb X 2 Raid 0 / WD 2 74gb Raptors Raid 0 2 WD 1 TB Storage
    VC - EVGA 480 GTX X 2 SLI Water Cooled
    OS - Win 7 PRO 64bit OEM
    DVD - 2 LG DVD Burner OEM

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to use your RAM since it's DDR2 and X58 uses DDR3.

    What's your current PSU?

    If this will work then I will use the funds from the Corsair psu to buy RAM...

    Fermi cards run hot and suck a lot of power... I'd just get a 5870; $100 cheaper, cooler, only a bit slower.
    That motherboard is nice, but expensive.
    I like the RAM and CPU.
    Your current PSU is just fine.
