its a great rig.....the ONLY thing i would add to it is a PCI-E X4 SSD main....fastest SATA based SSD is only 550mb read speed a second.....the new PCI-E X4 M.2 drives can run at 3500mb a second read speeds....but the draw back is a 512gb at this speed about $150 US....you can get intel drives that run 1800mb a second for a 100 bucks that are 1TB is size.....even the slower intel is just a little over 3 times faster then your WD 1tb SSD main you have now.....

intel 1TB drive

512gb samsung SSD for 150 that is faster

rest of the rig is BITCHEN but that sweet new CPU will be waiting on the slow SSD drive you have now....(can't believe i am saying that about a SSD drive) but the real world has shown the new M.2 drives are the same 5 times speed boost as going from a old harddrive to a SATA based SSD (if you get the faster samsung)

I would only change the main drive like @smokerob79 said. definitely worth it. I have a 512gb one but now i regret not buying the 1tb version. I also use 4tb for storing movies that i like and save to watch whenever i want, and have another 2tb hard drive for personal files and saved programs that i use.

but great setup none the less.. but really look into m.2 drive.
