also you won't need a faster cpu for a while. i think your best bet is to wait for the Dx10 cards to come out and get one of those since teh 7800 is pretty good already. unless you're really picky w/ FPS and having all graphics maxed out and high settings just aren't enough for you then stay w/ it and upgrade later.

if you feel like upgrading soon (for the sake of upgrading mostly) then look into liquid cooling or more Hard drive space.

that's my 2 cents.
I actaully have been considering liquid cooling, although again I know almost nothing about it. Are there any really good beginner tutorials on it out there you guys know of?
