    Best Video Card?

    Thanks for all the suggestions. In the end I sold my X51 and built a new rig myself. Needed more expandability for my business use of the machine, while still having gaming power for after work.

    Best Video Card?

    Was looking at a 760 today. Only 30watts more than my stock card so should be fine.

    Best Video Card?

    My X51r1 has a GTX 555 card in it. What's my best upgrade option for a fast stable card given our power limitations?

    Adding SSD to Existing X51 R2 with Single 2TB HDD?

    Mine is working great as well. Super fast boot-up times, but with plenty of storage on the old HD. No issues at all.

    Did the SSD Update today.

    I paid $109 for the drive. Could have gotten it a little cheaper. But i went for the kit that has migration software and the sata cable. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147185 Also bought the needed power splitter...

    Did the SSD Update today.

    Installed a Samsung 840 (120GB) SSD today to compliment the default 1tb Hard drive. Boot-up is crazy fast, and my Windows Experience score went from 5.9 to 7.4 Was very easy to do with the tips from here.
