hey bro...only place left to go from here is UP....!!! Congrats on very nice set up...tested and proven...Check HERE... ( https://www.bestsevenreviews.com/category/benchmark/

Next thing you need to do..if your feeling "SPUNKY""..The Video CArds......These cards are really great vid cards...even tho their reputation is ?? by some people...but if you have the XFX Versions of these cards...YOU CAN DOMINANTE...if your willing to overclock them.They Can an Do compare Equally too..or Better than a majority of VID Cards cost 2/3/4 times as much money...Power Results..here... https://www.techpowerup.com/review/zotac-geforce-9600-gt-amp-edition/24.html .....Look @ center of Page ..3D MARK results.......

Now the only real thing is to set up your cards PROPERLY in the BIOS..when in Windows and ready to Overclock.....and USING ....EVGA ""PRECISION TUNE "".....works for all NVIDIA CARDS...(link... https://www.evga.com/precisionx1/ .........UN-LINK YOUR SHADERS.....(set each seperately..+/- 3-5 mhz....)..
Your MEMORY IS YOUR FRIEND..USE IT...OverClock your memory and Leave your Core Clock alone...you dont need to mess with it. Your 3 cards and the Memory will do what you need.

32 or 64....no ??????? 64....your computer will thank you and your games will thank you.....there are very little/few driver problems with 64 systems....tho you may have to search a bit...but worth it....I run VISTA XP SERVER 20008...and Windows 7.......trust me 64 will be your friend
