I have no idea what to suggest... To get a significant upgrade GPU wise you will need SLI or Titan. CPU wise you will need a 3930K... which also means new RAM and mobo... RAM wise you can always get another 8GB or faster RAM.

What cooling do you have, maybe upgrade that or something, try to get your computer running quieter?

H100. The only thing I want to do to my case is cut the front grill out which I'm doing tomorrow.

Ahh well that's your own fault then, built too good a rig =p The only other thing is maybe SLI 580's?

I suppose a new KB might be in order. What are those mechanical ones like?

sell the 580 and the 460.  If you want to stick with nvidia go for a 670 (those cards will use half the power of a single 580), and if you want to go AMD then the 7970 is the second strongest card on the market behind the nvidia titan.  Your hdd space is also weaksauce, get a 3tb internal HDD and stick it in there.

Any reason you have 2 different-level Nvidia cards? I'm guessing you're using the 460 for Physx but that's overkill when the 580 could handle it along with any game out. As far as an upgrade, you could go a few ways - faster CPU, 16GB RAM, and a single, faster GPU.

I had my 460 left over from my previous rig. As far as CPU's go, I have the 3770K as the only upgrade without getting a whole new motherboard. Not sure if its worth it as the new Intel lineup is coming out soon.

Just kill that so called bug...this is not the time to  upgrading unless you need too... and you don't need too!

You can do other things to your PC such as case modding, get better fans and such.

An IPS (or 120 Hz) panel.

Upgrade your sound

Get yourself a lovely GTX 680 clock the balls off it, then sell your 460/580. Get a Korean 2650 x 1440 monitor.

I was thinking about selling my H100 and getting full blown WC'ing.

If you already have 5.1 home theater surround through HDMI, and a 26-inch-plus monitor at at least 1920, then it's time to max out your graphics card---a 680, 690 or Titan. Make sure you have a good PSU first.

Nothing. Ram is good and processor is fast (plus it overclocks well). GPU is strong and should be playing current games at max or near max level details (no reason to blow $300+ on a new GPU when your playing games great which is the sole purpose of a GPU.......). I will wait to early next year and then re-evaluate

When I get bored I mod my case with fans or tear it down and clean every part if im really bored.

Get a sound card. An Onkyo SE-300PCIE will squash that upgrade bug.
