    Do it, do it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    I can't see your pic because I'm at work :( But what are you exactly doing? New build or upgrading? Because I don't think you can really go much further with a skt 775 CPU so you would probably be looking at dumping a nice new HD6970 in your current rig or selling up and starting from scratch :D (new mobo, CPU, RAM etc etc)
