I would personally have taken some of the money from the second GPU, the motherboard and the second HDD and invested in a better processor and a SSD. That 3DMark06 score is pretty low for CF 4890s which leads me to believe they may be bottlenecked by your processor. And based on everything I've been reading about SSDs, they are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I'm not quite sure what you expected with challenging jdrom17 in SPi 1M. His processor has way more cache, which alone gives him a HUGE edge, and he is overclocked to a higher speed. The only "advantage" you had was slightly faster RAM which isn't even that important for 1M.
