Not much I can think of. The GTX 560Ti is still very strong and will matter more in gaming than anything on that hardware list. Maybe a nice Steel Series mousepad? I really like their size, thickness, surface, and feel they really bring my mice to life in games.

Windows index doesn't mean a whole lot and is a very basic reference. I have an Intel 2500K out here in the garage and it scores a 7.5 on the index, so...it's relative. 7.9 is the max you can get, so what does "0.5" really mean?

Define "right" :wink:

If it gives you no issues, then it should be right imho. It's probably slow as heck compared to larger and newer drives. But I would only consider a larger drive when you feel the need for the extra storage or if you have games/programs on that drive that you must be able to access incrementally faster.

For a 965...? That sounds just about right. I have an i7-870, which is a slightly better CPU than the 965, and it's a 7.5.

For a CPU, I think the two main features impacting the WEI are number of cores and processing speed. You might be able to OC the CPU and move the WEI by .1 (maybe .2, but doubtful).

Hope this helps.
