The only thing that might help is bumping your processor up to the i7 970 which has 6 cores instead of 4 (assuming the Floworks solver is parallel, I am not familiar with it). You already maxed out the RAM, which is the other important factor. The video cards don't matter yet.

As I know SW and SW FloWorks don't use CUDA GPUs.
