As far as your drives is just much neater to have a decent size ssd doing games, apps and OS. Then a single 2-3 tb drive for storage. I run 2 ocz ssd's in raid0. Your chipset on your rig don't play nice with raid on ssd and trim so...

Maybe consider a new card versus another 7850 prices been dropping on the 7970's, your monitors and a new mouse, possibly a big ssd as others mentioned, 240 or better idea.
I've looked at the rat 7 and .. meh :| it looks like a broken mouse to me lol

I will look into getting an big SSD.. although my PC is currently booting up in under 9 seconds from the BIOS (2min+ if you count the RAID card initialization)

I hear my chipset is fine for SSDs and PCI-E SSDs lol

never throwing my GTS 450, that thing has lasted me forever :D putting a 7850 in my GFs rig would be COMPLETE overkill lol
