Very, very happy with this old computer. Runs every game i'd want, at the resolution I want. I used to build a new computer every 2 years, but haven't again since I built this 8 years ago.

Looking for some ideas for slight upgrades? You can get cards to upgrade the SATA?

Xeon X5670 (@2.93 (4.15))
Asus P6t
6GB (3x2), --756, 9, 9, 9, 24, 74, 1t
GTX 650Ti
Intel SSD 330 120GB
Samsung 850 evo 500GB

Maybe I'm silly, but I built a new computer with my son and I can't see the performance difference ... so I don't regret upgrading this and I don't feel the need to drop $800 for a new computer.

you'd recommend more ram? are there compatible triple memory kits?
you know anything about SATA upgrade cards for the SSDs?
