Depends on your budget

You could upgrade you cpu to fx8350 and the gpu

And pick up a HDD cause if you only got that ssd I bet your running out of space

Yeah I already have a 500gb HDD, looking to get a 2tb soon. As for budget, im just looking to see what would be best to upgrade without spending too much. Also looking to buy two monitors 1920x1080 22"+

Well then I suggest getting the FX8350 cpu (update your MB bios) and picking up at least a 7950, with that you're set for CF later on.

Can't really recommend going with nvidia because you'd have to buy a new MB to sli later unless you prefer buying a single powerful card. Then pick up at least a 770gtx.
