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 The processor is fine, I just feel those I listed are a bit outdated but which should be the first upgrade?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Nothings outdated.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.
Your body may be gone, I'm gonna carry you in in my head and in my heart, in my soul.

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.
