If I said upgrade, assume I have everything. The processor is fine, I just feel those I listed are a bit outdated but which should be the first upgrade?


Thanks.

Nothings outdated. When it gets slow to you then upgrade. The next time you upgrade video cards I recommend a single card.

Get another 4 gigs of ram and buy a SSD to migrate your OS onto.

Most games run fairly well on 4gb of RAM. There may be a few games that combined with other services and OS that go over 4, but not usually.

I think that you'll see the most noticeable difference (with everything, not just games) for the most reasonable cost with a small SSD (say 120gb.) Keep your HDD, and use it for storage, and put your games, apps, and OS on the SSD. It's a speed difference you will appreciate every time you use your PC, and if you don't write data on it too frequently, it may last you through multiple computers.
