    CPU and GPU is fine for now, as is nearly everything else.

    I would, however, get your screens upgraded to both 1080p.




    I owe Loric everything I have.
    No I don't.

    Alright, I'll look into some new screens. Do you know any place to get a good deal on gaming glasses? I found this site:

    http://shop.gunnars.com/gaming-eyewe...00?fitf=Medium

    And should I just get an external Hard Drive oppose to a SSD since it's cheaper? I don't see the big difference unless it's the hardware.

    You have enough storage space so you could go for an SSD.

    I'm going to have to let you down on the gaming glasses though. They're a bit too expensive for me and I need prescription glasses either way. They don't ship those to Belgium IIRC. I also haven't read much about them either. :/
