If you have the following specifications:
Intel Core i7-950 3.06 GHz
1792MB nVidia GeForce GTX 295
12GB DDR-1333 RAM
and you can improve it with one more option, what will it be?

While you have to choose between these three options, what will you choose?
A. Upgrade the graphics to SLI for double 1792MB nVidia GeForce GTX 295
B. Upgrade the two normal 60Hz monitors to two 120Hz monitors
C. Upgrade the i7-950 processor to the i7-975 (3.33GHz), which is the Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition

I am in a dilemma. Currently, I am considering between A or B.

Although SLI is not really giving you a 100% increase in performance, it is at least sustainable for the next few years from all the intense 6 months graphics card upgrade cycle. Then, I am looking into possibly getting the 120Hz monitors for the possibility of using the NVIDIA 3D VISION Kit.

If you are wondering, this computer will be used for 3D rendering, statistical, geographical, environmental analysis and virtual reality visualization.
