My System Specs

Default 990x, W3690, X5690

I'm going to be opening up old faithful for a gpu upgrade (680m) and while everything is out (comes with all new heatsinks for cpu/gpu) I would upgrade the cpu if I was able to find one (even used) for less then the arm and leg they're going for on Ebay.

In order of preference
I7-990X
Xeon W3690 (single socket workstation xeon)
Xeon X5690 (actually my preference but not for what they cost)

Got my eye on another used Sager 9280 (Clevo D900F) that will become the recipient of old parts (480m, 990x) to keep as a backup or a home laptop (I take this one 1500km every couple weeks)
