I can't seem to decide what to upgrade next now. The things on the list are pretty much after thoughts with low priority, since the important parts have already been taken care of for some time.

-A dedicated sound card? I have only a set of computer 5.1 speakers with me. I'm not one of those audiophile who spend thousands on home theatre grade speakers for their computer.

-Maybe a new CPU cooler? I can certainly push a few multipliers with a better cooler, but I'm not really the type who overclock without the need for it.

-Maybe a Phenom II x6 1090T? With luck I may be able to actually notice some gaming performance difference. No harm dreaming.

-Get another 4GB memory? I'm somewhat curious about running Crysis, Metro 2033 and maybe Shattered Horizon all in windowed mode and play them via alt-tab. I mean, what else does a gamer need another 4GB for?

-A better looking set of keyboard and mouse? I'm still using a traditional set of Logitech white keyboard and mouse, which haven't failed me for years. Still, their colour is kinda standing out from the rest of my build.

-A Mac? My carpet has been mistreated for a long time, having to bear a heavy HAF 932 upon it day and night. Maybe I should buy a Mac so that it may serve as a stack for my case? I will probably need two 17 inch MacBook Pro for that, HAF 932 is kinda big.

I can always use good suggestions or new ideas.

Na don't upgrade that should last you at least 5 yrs. Just get a better cpu cooler and mouse and keyboard and maybe a 2nd 1tb hard drive just incase.
