Can't argue with that.
No game out can make that processor break a sweat.
I don't know what your budget was though.
The next step would be a 64gig SSD, to take advantage of "smart response"
If you wanted to upgrade further, it would be the video card.
Don't get me wrong, that card is extremely strong, and I don't think you need to upgrade, I'm just saying if you did want to spend more money, that is where to spend it.
The other thing to consider, depending on need, is backup.
I like to have a second hard drive in at least 1 computer, to run a dedicated backup.
It doesn't have to be a high speed one.Hard Sayin Not Knowin

Do you know of any good keyboards, speakers, monitor, and mouses that are meant for gaming?

General rule for gaming keyboards/mice is to go wired. Wireless= lag.
I have the Logitech G110 keyboard, which i like because the keys are backlit.

Microsoft Sidewinder X4 is another good Keyboard, also backlit keys.
as to mice, there's so many out there, its hard to say for sure.
I still use a Logitech G5 laser, though my new mouse is a Gigabyte MX8000 something or other, I forget the model, but is supposed to be a really good one as well, also wired.
Speakers are hard to say, I have my sound piped through a 5.1 500W Home Theater setup, and a dedicated Sound card, though my new board will be using the onboard audio for the same speakers.
Monitors... LED Backlit, as much screen size as you can get, 1680x1050 at least recommended resolution, anything below 5ms response time, as high a contrast/Brightness ratio as you can get... some sort of Digital Input Be it DVI, HDMI or Displayport.

any well know and used 64gig SSD?

I'm not up to speed yet, but I do know, it wants to have a SandForce controller.
This guy has all you want to know, though.
SSD Decoder V4.0 | PC Perspective.
I like their pod casts also, as the cast goes on, the beer goes down.Hard Sayin Not Knowin
