Default upgrading more..

before we begin, i know my computer doesnt really need anymore upgrades, i played farcry 2 for a few hours today without even a hint of a hitch

however my computer freezes sometimes, my CPU is overclocked to 3.5ghz @1.36v and i plan on running that all day, however i dont think its the problem

i will be adding another HD to my system to install vista x64 on it. instead of wiping my HD for the 2203480th time i'll just add another one.

my graphics cards are running a little hotter than i would like them to be.. after an hour of farcry2 one of my cards were at 83celcius, and the other was at 78.. i have a sound card sandwiched between my GPUs so im not sure if that would be a problem.

since i will be running vista x64 im also thinking of adding anotherr 4gigs of dominators, just because their dirt cheap and because i want to.

another thing im considering is water cooling. for my CPU and for my GPU.. my CPU is running dandy right now not even reaching 50celsius under load. but my GPUs are running a little hotter than i would like them to..
