Hi Jonny,

Adding another video card would be a great upgrade, you could crossfire both 7990's. For this upgrade, a 330W ac adapter will be necessary.

If you're planning on installing an SSD, a Raid configuration isn't necessary. Install the OS on the SSD, keep the HDD as storage and leave the mSATA accelerated.  

I believe it's a smart decision, send us an email to alienwareupgrades@dell.com with your service tag and contact info. We’ll help you to get the right parts for your rig.
