My System Specs

Default

GBA asked the right question... what is it being used for? 'Development' is very vague. In most software development situations, I would be dropping the GPU down to something like a 7850, and taking the extra money, combined with the savings on the GPU, and buy 2 or 3 large monitors. I know that if I was working in development, I'd be way happier with more screen real estate rather than a gaming GPU I was never going to use.

Also, yes, a decent cooler that allows a reasonable OC isn't a bad idea.

*EDIT* - I'd tend to disagree with RAID 0 SSD's on a workstation as reliability is way to important in a work environment.
