I only really upgraded the processor, however as I've now had it for 6 months I'm starting to get the upgrade bug. Most likely I'll ditch the stock RAM and go with 2x4Gb Kingston Hyperx 1866mhz Plug'n'Play. After that, an SSD is on the menu

Absolutely - though I'd not like hazard a guess as to availability and pricing of aftermarket gtx580 cards.
