Help me max out my WEI

Just got a new rig.
Here's my WEI


OK, so I realize I need a video card and an SSD.
Question is... which one of the plethora out there will max out the WEI (at 7.9)?

It likely depends on your other components. I just did a quick google search and others with 560 ti sli's have a 7.9, someone even got a 7.9 with one 560 ti apparently. You could also run the WEI again.

For reference I have an i5-2500k 4.0ghz

overclocking the GPU makes a huge difference.

I really don't like the tweakiness of the WEI...

It can depend on so many factors.

WEI is not meant to be a precise measurement of performance.
It's an indication of how your rig compares to others.

Maxing it is more psychological for me.
It's another way of asking which SSD and GPU card is the best.
Actually, if I just asked it that way, people would post "I have X and I recommend", and another guy would say "I have Y and I recommend".
Now what? Which do you buy?
