    Question Time To Tweek!

    Hey guys, am noob here and to mods. Here's the story..

    i'm using a decent system and want some recommendations on upgrades and tweeking.
    here it is...

    ASUS P5n32-e Sli Premium, Intel Q6600, 4GB Corsair XMS2 PC-6400, 2x nVidia GeForce Fatal1ty,
    Creative X-FI Fatal1ty, 400GB Samsung boot with 750gb seagate, 550w psu all stuck in a silver soprano thermaltake case.

    want to upgrade the graphics but have a problem with space. had to take out one of the graphics cards because i added the X-FI and the graphics card heat sink was way too big and in the way.

    what to do?

    next i have been looking into cooling and as i don't intend modding the arse of my system i've ordered some air cooling accessories.

    waiting on a thermalright ifx-14 for the cpu, also 3 scythe sff21e's.
    been looking at akasa ram sinks but dunno yet.

    can you peeps give me some upgrade,cooling and tweek suggestions

    Wouldn't bother with the RAM heatsinks, which graphics cards do you have, you forgot to put the model number, eg, 7600GT or whatever.

    Buying an 8800gt should improve your gaming performance noticeably.... other than that not much to recommend, its all pretty sweet.
